Last week we had the pleasure of hosting Elaine Fletcher Chapman with The Writer’s Studio:

“Elaine Fletcher Chapman is the author of a volume of poems, Hunger for Salt. She worked on staff at The Bennington Writing Seminars, Bennington College for 18 years where she also received her MFA. She founded The Writer’s Studio in 2005. She teaches poetry & nonfiction and organizes Poetry Readings and Writing Retreats. She writes nonfiction as well as poetry.

Elaine offered a workshop on journal writing.  All available slots for her workshop were filled, and participants enjoyed their evening or writing. Below was what her course offered:

“Why keep a journal? This one evening workshop will explore the many reasons for keeping a journal. We will discuss what is needed to begin and maintain a journal or notebook. Come for encouragement, inspiration and discovery.”

Our next event with The Writer’s Studio will be “An Evening With Haiku.” Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Elaine will review form and craft of Haiku.  Enjoy readings of ancient and modern Haiku and share your Haiku with the group.  Materials to write and send your Haiku out into the world will be provided.  Please bring the addresses of several friends to mail out your Haiku!

If you are interested in reserving your spot in this workshop please contact Elaine at or by phone at 757-650-8735.  The cost to register is $45.
