THE WORD KITCHEN 2: Recipes for Revision

Tuesday February 28, 2023 from 1-3 PST (Wednesday, March 1, 2023 from 8-10 am AEDT)

Please join me for a free, virtual WORD KITCHEN!

Here's how this workshop will work: Bring 10 pages of your own writing-in-progress, and I will lead you through two hours of exercises and prompts that will help you revise your work. We will meet on Zoom, so you can live anywhere.

Please invite friends and colleagues and writers to attend. The workshop is free and open to all levels, genres, stages of the writing process.

The workshop will be recorded, so if you cannot attend the live session, you will be able to watch the recording on your own schedule.



“You create these magical, transformative experiences where I realize that my writing can be so much better because you show me how to make it better. Your work helps shift me from doubting my abilities to believing that I can be a better writer."

-- Shelley Baird, Writer

"I loved this workshop. The truth about listening deeply to our own authority/authorship as we revise our work, while freely, wildly looking at the work from different angles speaks to a dismantling of entrenched thinking of what is good, familiar, and bad. It taps into the freedom I’ve felt when I’ve been in groups that center black feminist voices of color, like Lorde and Morrison. This workshop speaks to the beauty we all have within to create."

-- Sara Yamasaki, Writer

“The WORD KITCHEN was amazing! Thank you for encouraging to dig deep and to take up space. I had so much fun looking at my WIP in a new light. You are a gift to the writing community.”

-- Kirby Larson, Writer

"When I was in my first classroom space of 4th graders, I imagined myself as the lead singer of a band. I wasn't always the most important, but I somehow thought I was supposed to be the loudest voice everyone could hear. In the two decades+ since then, I've learned that a teacher/facilitator/leader is not the lead singer. They/She/He are really the drummer. They set the beat and the rhythm that everyone else follows . . . I say this all because I believe and have witnessed your authentic and excellent drumming skills in these Word Spaces. The WORD KITCHEN yesterday was another one to add to the list. Your energy creates energy in the writers that creates energy in the writing . . . So well done!"

-- Laurie Zum Hofe, Writer
