1-2-Writing Newsletter - January 12, 2010

Greetings Fellow Writers!

After a long period of reduced activity, the "New and Revised" 1-2-Writing returns to provide workshops and inspiration for 2010.  For links to all of our new features, please visit our homepage at  And please pardon our dust as you stop by - a great deal of the revised site is still under construction, but we'll have more up and running soon.

New! 1-2-Writing Members Area
For those who have taken our Summer Freewriting courses, we've decided to expand this program into our Members Area on the website.  Through the Members Area, you'll receive weekly freewriting prompts as well as access to our Creative Writers Support Forum.  In addition, throughout the year we'll be offering additional workshops free of charge to our members (and we all know how cool free stuff can be).  To sign up, just fill in the form from our homepage or reply back to this e-mail.

Upcoming Classes
For January, we're bringing back the weekly freewriting prompt starting this Friday.  Every Friday, all our members will receive a prompt to inspire some fun writing over the weekend, and then you can post your work for comments in the forums.

Starting next Monday the 18th (Martin Luther King Day), we'll have a one-week "intensive" freewriting course.  We'll have three freewriting assignments (10 min each plus some additional "prep" to get everyone ready to write) for the 18th, 20th, and 22nd.  Space is limited - the course fee will be $20.  Visit our Registration Page to sign up.
