Juddville, Wis. (April 28, 2020) – There are two new exciting opportunities from Write On, Door County – “Door Posts” and an Online Poetry Class.
Are you looking for something to do at home? Do you want to try your hand at creative non-fiction writing? Then join the Hal Prize and Write On, Door County for “Door Posts: Safer-at-Home Stories, A Community Writing Project.”
Life has seen many changes in the past few months and people are adapting to a new way of living. We want to hear how people’s daily lives have changed – the good and bad. Stories should be 300-500 words and can be written in any style. Topics can be about adjusting to life at home, something funny that happened, interesting musings you have had and more! The goal is to spark creativity.
Submissions will be reviewed by staff at Write On and one story will be selected weekly to be printed in the Peninsula Pulse throughout the Safer at Home order. To submit your work, please click here.
You can also participate in an online Poetry Writing Workshop with Donna Hilbert on May 11, 2020. In this 90 minute Zoom generative workshop, we will explore the nexus of lyric and narrative poetry as well the Apollonian-Dionysian dimension. This will not be as serious as it sounds! We will read, write, and talk poetry. I find the most memorable poems combine narrative drive with the lyric intensity of focused image and emotion.
Tuition for the 90-minute workshop on May 11 is $25. To register online for this class, click HERE. For other registration options, please call 920-868-1457.

This is a difficult time, but it’s afforded us opportunities to grow! We are excited to share writing experiences for you and your families on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and our website. Our online community is growing quickly and we’ve appreciated the outpouring of participation. We hope you take advantage of these exciting activities.
