I concluded my writer-in-residency at the Liminal Center in June, but I am still fully in support of this awesome, communal, feminist space for women in the creative arts to come together to learn and grow our talents together.
Fall Workshops Offered
One of Liminal’s primary purposes is to provide hands-on writing workshops for writers who identify as female. These six-week sessions provide valuable instruction from experienced writers and instructors in small groups, and they are starting soon! The full list is here, but sign up before these classes begin on 9/18.
May I recommend Origin & LIMINALITY: Experimental Writing with Gina Goldblatt? It’s one of two workshops Gina is leading, and as the founder of Liminal, you’ll get a great view into the heart of this organization. Learn to write subversively while exposing truth through fiction.
Liminal stalwarts Terrilynn Cantlon and Brenda Usher-Carpino are both at the helms of workshops as well. Terrilynn will be Silencing the Critic Within, an essential dragon to tame for anyone seriously venturing into the creative arts. Brenda will delve into the Art of Dramatic Dialogue for character development in the dramatic arts.
The Liminal Fall Workshops are offered on a sliding scale of $200-$320 — Pay what you can afford to support this awesome literary organization! Liminal also reserves two spots in its workshops for participants who can’t pay at all. Contact Gina at firstname.lastname@example.org if that’s your situation.
One Day Intensive Workshops
For the first time, Liminal is offering one-day writing seminars, which I personally think is a great idea as that’s the commitment level I can handle. The first one is happening tomorrow, September 10th, and it’s not too late if you’d like to Get Into the Writing Groove with Jenee Darden. Just head here to sign up and get the full list of one-day sessions offered this fall.
There is a great set of one-day classes on the agenda throughout the fall, including how to Write Characters of Social Action with Jasmine Wade, creating the heroes we need to see in fiction these days. Jasmine is also teaching the Wonderland of Myth: Writing into the Past and Present, which I would love to take if I were in town that day. *cry* Sessions on grief writing, healing from trauma through writing, and writing about negative experiences are also on the agenda.
Pricing for the one-day intensive sessions depends on the length of the course, whether a couple of hours or a full day. Again, head here for the full list!
Whatever course or workshop you choose, Liminal will greet you with welcoming, supportive arms. Or at least that was my experience co-working at Liminal with these lovely women this last spring.
