Reminder: The Chattahoochee Review Writers’ Studio Friday, September 21, 2018

The Chattahoochee Review Writers’ Studio takes place on Friday, Sept. 21, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Room CL-4100 on the 4th floor of the JCLRC (CL) Building on Perimeter College’s Clarkston campus. This annual event features a free one-day series of workshops for 15 participants geared toward the Perimeter College community and beyond. Attendees explore the writing craft used to create drama, prose, poetry, and mixed media works. Building upon the journal’s 37-year history of nurturing the literary arts within the college and the wider community, The Chattahoochee Review Writers’ Studio aims to inspire creative thinkers.

Registration for the studio runs from Tuesday, Sept. 4 through Wednesday, Sept. 19. To register, contact Alicia Johanneson at 678-891-3275 or ajohanneson@gsu.edu. Attendees are encouraged to bring either a paper notebook and something to write with, or a laptop, since all of the workshops will be generative (i.e. requiring participants to create something in written form or work through writing exercises).

The studio’s schedule is as follows:
