From the Top
A Writing Workshop led by Alison Lobron
Blodgett House, Bard College at Simon’s Rock, 1:30-2:30 p.m.

“I have so much to say, but can’t figure out where to start!” If these words sound familiar to you, you might enjoy this hour-long session aimed at helping writers craft great beginnings.  Through a series of fun short exercises, you’ll experiment with different ways into stories important to you and get an introduction to the Berkshire Writing Workshop, a Simon’s Rock summer program aimed at aspiring and established adult writers, directed by Alison Lobron.  Please bring a pen and notebook.

Alison Lobron is a journalist and the founder/director of the Berkshire Writing Workshop at Bard College at Simon’s Rock. A recent transplant to the Berkshires, she is a regular contributor for The Boston Globe Magazine, where she writes often about education, urban life, and relationships.
