2019 Monthly Workshops
Join the Castle Rock Writers for monthly workshops, starting January 7. The group is meeting on 1st Mondays in 2019, not 2nd Mondays.
Place: Philip S. Miller Library, Castle Rock Time: 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
On January 7, we will be workshopping written pieces, so bring six to eight copies of five pages of a manuscript or five pages of poetry. For manuscripts, please double-space, Times New Roman or Courier font, 12 or 14 points with 1 inch margins. These are standard requirements for manuscripts, and they enable people to have room to comment on your work.
Hope to see you on January 7th!

Write-out & Workshop: Plan on writing for an hour. After a short break, writers can take turns
reading what they have written or read five pages of a work-in-progress.
Bringing a manuscript is not required. New writers may feel more comfortable reading
after they get to know the group.
How to prepare your manuscript for Write-out & Workshop Group:
Double-space, Times New Roman, 12-14 points.
Select five pages of your work to read.
Bring six to eight copies for others to follow along and make comments.
Using blank sides of old manuscripts is fine.
Your copies will be returned to you that evening.
If Douglas County School District or DCHS is closed due to weather, the meeting is cancelled. If the library is closed, the meeting is cancelled. For more information, contact CRW at 303-521-8615
