Novice and experienced writers are welcome. Registration is required. Virtual Programs

Writers will create, share, and critique original work while learning to develop their own voice and style via Zoom. Novice and experienced writers are welcome. Registration is required.

This program is led by Kathleen Balma, a Pushcart Prize-winning poet, Fulbright fellow, and New Orleans Public Library librarian. Email her at kbalma@nolalibrary.org to register and to get the Zoom meeting information.

All genres are welcome, and participants should clarify whether they are submitting poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or a play. Each program will open with an optional writing prompt for those without a prepared work; this will allow everyone in attendance to share their writing and receive feedback. Katy will use standard workshop/peer critique norms and etiquette, which will be explained and reviewed briefly during each workshop.

Etiquette and norms for workshops are as follows:

  1. Treat everyone with civility and respect.
  2. Be mindful of what you are making visible to others; all visuals should be appropriate for a public meeting space.
  3. Please mute your mic and refrain from making written comments when your own work is being critiqued.
  4. Be aware of how much, or how little, you are talking; don't "hog the mic."
  5. Creative expressions are welcome; hate speech is not. 

This is a recurring program. It occurs every other Saturday through September.
