Welcome to the Rehoboth Beach Writers' Guild

The Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild is founded on the belief that as writers we can--and should--use our skills and talents to help give voice to the many people who have important and necessary stories to tell that, for whatever reason, are not being told. Through our Free Writes! Reading Series and Young Writers’ Program, we hope to educate, encourage and nurture writing of all kinds at all skill levels.
-- Maribeth Fischer, Founder  & Executive Director

New Class - Flash Prose: Micro Memoir and Fiction (3 weeks)

Is less really more? The answer is sometimes yes (especially if you're preparing for a 300-word reading!). Whether you're into memoir, fiction or even prose poetry, or if you just want to try something completely different, this three-session workshop has something for everyone. In this class, we will work on our own micro pieces--work that is just a page or two, or paragraph or two, in length.  By studying a range of examples and through quick exercises, you will be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a short amount of space. As one writer says, this type of writing has "its teeth bared and its claws extended." You can bring things you've been working on to pare them down, or you can create a couple of completely new pieces. Like summer, the class will be quick, casual, and fun. Taught by Ethan Joella, Wednesdays July 16, 23, 30 10am -12. Cost: $135 RBWG Members, $150 Non Members
