Learn the Write Stuff From Goat Hill Writers

The local literary collaborative welcomes aspiring scribes back to Workshop-Palooza at School One on March 18

Writing is, by definition, a solitary endeavor. It happens between you, the pen and the paper - unless you’re working on your computer, in which case it happens between you, your keyboard and Facebook. You can’t exactly sit with a bunch of likeminded people while you’re actually in the act of writing. Or can you? Goat Hill Writers, the literary collaborative of Ann Hood, Taylor Polites and Hester Kaplan, is bringing back their popular Workshop-palooza at School One on March 18. The all-day workshop gathers other local literary luminaries for workshops in many different literary disciplines. Mary-Kim Arnold will be talking about the line between poetry and prose, and whether that line actually exists. Hip hop artist Marlon Carey will give a hip hop verse workshop. Lesley University professor Susan Goodman will run writing exercises meant to help you move your manuscript along, Coastal Living’s Tracey Minkin will dish on travel writing, and cookbook author Michael Ruhlman will give a talk on writing about food. Think of it like a creative writing MFA, but without all of that pesky student debt.
