If you’ve always wanted to write but weren’t sure how to begin, start the New Year off right by giving yourself the gift of a writing workshop.

Susanne Davis is a creative writing teacher at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, and she runs a workshop in her divine little studio in back of her house–a place of such safety and comfort and coziness that it’s where words go to be brought to life.

This winter, she’s running a one-day writing retreat in her Words on Fire studio. Join her and other writers (both beginning and experienced) on Saturday, January 12, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m….and take the first courageous step to bringing your own words to life.

Whether you’re writing your own story or a fictional tale that’s begging you to write it, with Susanne’s gentle guidance and encouragement, your work can come to be.

She’s helped midwife lots of stories into publication. Her own short stories have been published in numerous journals, including American Short Fiction, Notre Dame Review, descant, Feminist Studies, St. Petersburg Review, Zone 3, Carve, and Boston Fictional Annual Review. She’s won the Hemingway First Novel Award, American Short Fiction contest (second place) and mention as the author of a distinguished story in Best American Short Stories series. A section of her novel, Gravity Hill, was featured at the Boston Fiction Festival. She holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

The cost for the workshop is $99 before 1/1/2013, and $110 after 1/2/13. To register, or to ask questions, contact Susanne at sdavisstorrs@sbcglobal.net.
