Our popular six week intimate, intensive exploration of craft and creativity will be conducted by award-winning writer and playwright, Debra Leigh Scott, Founding Director of Hidden River Arts and Editor-in-Chief of Hidden River Publishing. Hidden River continues its partnership with Cavanaugh’s in Headhouse Square in Society Hill to offer our workshops in the wonderful Pickwick Room — so named when this pub was The Dickens Inn – owned by a descendant of Charles Dickens himself.
What could be more perfect that a writers’ workshop in a private space that resonates with the spirit of Dickens? The workshop will meet on Wednesday from September 30 through November 4, from 6:45 to 9:00 p.m. in The Pickwick Room, at Cavanaugh’s Headhouse, 421 S. 2nd Street, Phila, PA 19147.
To maintain intimacy and personal attention, the workshop is limited to 12 people. We welcome writers at all levels of proficiency, from beginners to advanced, in this workshop.
Suggested tuition $235. But this season, we are also opening our workshop in a “Pay What You Can” format. Since Hidden River’s goal has always been to “serve the underserved artist”, we want to be sure that no one is turned away from our workshops for inability to pay tuition. We will happily work with you to find a way to barter, or adapt the fee, in a spirit of inclusivity. We accept PayPal, credit card and check payments. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-764-0813 to register and save your seat!*
Hidden River also brings a variety of workshops to private groups, schools, homeschool organizations, professional organizations — we can adapt all of our programs to suit your schedule and budget. Private individual tutoring and writing consultation, developmental assistance and editing help are also offered to writers at all levels of development. (We also can create online individual or group instruction!) Please see our Workshops page for further information about all that is offered. Also, click here for a great article written about us when we first launched this workshop.
*Discounts have always been offered for students, for senior citizens, for adjunct educators and others. And, of course, we are thrilled to accept donations that would help us to keep our programs running! Please email us at email@example.com to inquire.
