Creative Writing Workshops and Mentoring
I’ve been working with aspiring and accomplished writers for many years through The Writers Circle, a creative writing center that I founded in 2010. TWC offers creative writing workshops for writers from age 8-80 (and beyond) in several New Jersey locations and online. I love working with writers in almost every genre, and at every level of experience. Every writer I’ve worked with has taught me something about the process and, more often, about myself and our world. I particularly love working with inspired young writers who show me the depth of our innate creativity. I also work with writers privately (in person or virtually) on their full-length manuscripts and have had clients from all over the world. Visit TWC’s website to find out more about working with me or any of our other wonderful author-instructors.
Booking Events & Engagements
With the announcement of my new novel, AKMARAL, coming in 2024, I’ve begun scheduling pre-publication events and speaking engagements. I’m always thrilled to speak about my historical novels, my insanely in-depth research, and why I am drawn to truly obscure places and cultures in history.
I also love to share my passion for the creative process and all that I’ve learned through leading and teaching at The Writers Circle. Topics might include:
- the necessity of finding a creative community to support writers and artists in their work
- lessons I’ve learned from sticking with my novels through years of research and writing, and longer years waiting to find them a home
- the critical imperative to focus on the work of writing or creating, not as a means to an end, but as an end in itself
- the inspiration, discovery, struggle, and deeper understanding that are the true rewards of every artistic endeavor
At my events and book talks, I love to include creative writing prompts and exercises to engage participants and listeners to discover their own creative voice.
I’d love to share any or all of this with your podcast audience, book group, library patrons, writing community, news outlet, or other organization. You can use my contact page or email me at judithlindbergh @ gmail.com (remove the spaces!) 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” …
