Garbage into Gold
Workshop led by Laura Didyk
Berkshire South/Jenifer House, Great Barrington, 6:30–8:30 p.m.
There’s a myth about successful writers: they know what they want to write; they sit down and write it, brilliantly, on the first try. Wrong. Sometimes, most times, we need to write (and write and write) to find our subject matter, to arrive at a turn of phrase, an image, or a piece of dialogue that will bring us to the gold of our own work. In this workshop, writing practice, writing exercises and onthe‐spot assignments will help us quiet our inner editors long enough to surprise even ourselves.
Laura Didyk earned her MFA in creative writing from the University of Alabama. Her teaching experience ranges from the college classroom, to a state prison, to community classes throughout the Berkshires. Her work has appeared in national literary magazines. lauradidyk.com
