Creative Writing Workshops and Mentoring
I’ve been working with aspiring and accomplished writers for years through The Writers Circle, a creative writing organization that I founded in 2010. TWC offers creative writing workshops for children, teens and adults in five northern New Jersey locations. I also work with writers privately (in person or virtually) on their full-length manuscripts and have had clients from around the world; though I’m particular about the projects I take on, since I need to preserve a lot of time for my own writing. Visit TWC’s website to find out more about working with me or any of TWC’s other wonderful author-instructors.
June 8: I’ll be at the Maplewood South Orange Book Festival with my wonderful teen students talking about The Writers Circle’s Summer Creative Writing Intensives and WordSMASH! programs. Come by and say hello.
November 16: I am incredibly honored to be on a panel with my dear friends Stephanie Cowell and Pamela Leggett at The Madeleine L’Engle Conference: Walking on Water in New York City. And sometime soon, I’ll have a short piece featured on the conference website about a powerful lesson I learned from Madeleine.
January 17-20, 2020: I can’t wait to get back to the Winter Poetry & Prose Getaway where I will be teaching the Prose Critique Intensive. After a year off for this fabulous writing conference run by Murphy Writing at Stockton University, it’ll be wonderful to see old friends and meet new, and discover more amazing voices as I do every year. Join us for an inspiring weekend in South Jersey with writers from near and far.
For more events, weekly workshops, and lots of other literary doings, always check The Writers Circle.
I’m always up for a leading a writing-focused trip to a wild place, museum, cultural hub, or any source of place-based inspiration. Contact me.
I love to visit with book groups to talk about my books and the writing process in general. Contact me to find out more.
“I’ve never had an author bring a book to life the way that Judith did…. Judith is multi-talented — not only is she a gifted writer but she has a career that includes acting. The years of studying lines and parts and language allowed her to light an internal fire on her book like no one else could.
And for the people in the room, she brought a third dimension to the book solely through her words and expression and the ultimate love and intimacy that only she could have with this book.
It’s nights like these that I am able to say “this is why I do this” …
