The new Barbershop Writing Workshop kicked off last night at a home in Corona Heights, with the leader – Michael McAllister – myself and three other writers participating. I signed up for the ten-week workshop, which will consist of one two-and-a-half hour session per week, to do some networking as well as learn techniques and get useful critiques. I’m excited about it! Two of us had to bring a few pages of work-in-progress for the group to critique next week. I’ve already read through one piece and I think I am going to learn a lot.
