Cary, NC, United States, 2011/09/21 - Triangle Writers, a group of writers from Raleigh-Durham and surrounding areas, announces their fall writing workshops. The writing events will take place this October in downtown Raleigh.
Novelists, Memoirists and Journalists in the Triangle
Writers of all genres are welcome in workshops focused on sensory prompts, creating a writer’s website and learning about self-publishing. Three workshops are offered: Aromas and Creativity, Websites for Writers 101 and Self-Publishing Basics. All workshops take place from 10:30AM to 12:30PM on Saturdays throughout October 2011.
Saturday, October 1 – Aromas and Creativity: This one-of-a-kind workshop uses aromas instead of words or objects as creative writing prompts. A certified aromatherapist has selected specific essential oils shown to increase creativity. Workshop fee also includes a gift bag of products and attendees can create their own “creativity potion” to take home.
Saturday, October 8 – Websites for Writers 101: Websites can cost thousands of dollars to create and maintain. Alternatively, you can pay less than $100 for a hosting service, domain and be your own webmaster. Explore different services, neuromarketing techniques, make an outline for your website and learn SEO basics. Brunch included.
Saturday, October 15 – Self-Publishing Basics: Is your manuscript sparkling and ready to be printed and bound? If you’re con-sidering self-publishing your novel, memoir, non-fiction book or poetry, are you confident you can market your product effectively? Learn how to create a writer’s platform and facets of self-publishing. Brunch included.
