Midweek Mini Writing Marathons (29 June, 27 July, 31 August)


New workshops coming soon!

The Midweek Mini Writing Marathons are a space to write, share work, and connect with other writers around the world.

Join us for 3 hours of writing. The focus of each Mini Marathon will be just that: writing, producing work, and expanding the project you're working on.

We'll work with prose extracts, art, music, photography and objects to inspire surprising moments and details in your work. In the summer mini marathons we'll also use elements gathered from nature, our own bodies and voices, and food to go deeper into the projects we're working on. If you don't have a current project, the Mini Writing Marathons can be a great space to start new work, or just be open to the creative surprises that happen when writing with others.

The Mini Marathons will be a playful space to do the serious work of layering your writing.

What writers have been saying they like about the Mini Writing Marathons:

  • The short writing bursts. Writing together creates an energy of support & togetherness. Reading in other languages. Shaun shows me over & over that there is inspiration in everything. Life is the prompt, in this moment. I just have to open myself to it & write.
  • The prompts, playful, seemingly spontaneous, joyous, fun.
  • I enjoyed the confluence of bringing our own projects/characters/intentions and receiving words/images/connections from others. By encouraging play and resonance, I was able to lower my editorial defenses... discovering unexpected images or turns. When I began working with this material on my own, it unfolded into entirely new shapes.

The Mini Marathons are open to all writers everywhere, all levels and all genres. All you'll need is a willingness to write and be open to the surprises in your work. Although the Mini Marathons will be in English, participants are very welcome to write in any language.
