Spend the month with fellow writers in our virtual writing room. All Write Away sessions will include 3-hours of quiet writing time, beginning and ending with a check-in (a chance to chat with the other Write Away registrants at the start and conclusion of each session), and including a daily (optional) writing prompt.

Whether you're looking for time to see where you can take your current work-in-progress or you want the freedom to see where your writing takes you, our Write Away option is your chance to commit to your craft in a low-pressure and supportive environment.

Registration to the Write Away includes:

12 3-hour sessions. Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday in August; 6:00pm to 9:00pm CDT on Zoom.

Access to all 2020 SWR live webinars throughout the month. (Not the classes, of course - you'd need to register for one of those!)

The chance to be one of two Write Away readers during the Student Reading night on Thursday, August 27.



All credit card transactions will incur a 4% handling fee. To avoid the fee, you have the option of mailing a check to our office. If you choose to pay by check please
