Natalie Tsur and Mariah Lanzer will facilitate an evening of generative writing, as well as an informal exchange between attendees’ writing experiences, practices, and recent reads. In doing so, we hope to cultivate an intimate writing community (at no cost!) with the participation of other writers their age (18-25). Therefore, the Young Adult Open Write Workshop is FREE. The Hudson Valley Writers Center is always open for donations, but this is not required to attend the workshop.
This workshop will take place in HYBRID FORM, meaning there will be participants in person at HVWC as well as joining on the big screen via Zoom.
IN PERSON PARTICIPANTS are required to wear masks for the safety and wellbeing of our emerging community. We will not ask for proof of vaccination. However, Covid policies are subject to change and will be communicated in the days prior to the group meeting. In-person participants can opt to switch to Zoom, and vice-versa.
ZOOM PARTICIPANTS will get Zoom login instructions via email at the time of registration. (Please check spam folders.)
Please note that the space is wheelchair accessible through the north entrance.
Questions can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org.
