Prompt & Pinot (Virtual Writing Workshop)

Need a little writing inspiration? Here’s a more laid back yet productive one-session workshop that uses the time-tested device of a writing “prompt” (and a glass of Pinot or fizzy water or both) to stimulate your creativity, tap into your story ideas, and release your unique writing voice. You’ll also pick up tips on technique and experience first-hand how motivating and fun it can be to be part of a community of other writers. Open to anyone who wants to imbibe in the creative process. The workshop will begin with a mini introductory prompt to spark group conversation, followed by a prompt given by Joni, time for writing, then sharing and feedback at the end.

Registration is free. A Zoom invitation will be sent before the event. Please email with any questions.

Joni Cole teaches creative writing through her own Writer's Center in White River Junction, Vermont, and at graduate programs, workshops, and conferences around the country. She serves on the faculty of the New Hampshire Institute of Art, and teaches in the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program at Dartmouth College. She also leads expressive writing workshops at women’s shelters, the VA hospital, the restorative justice program, and a diversity of other nonprofit and educational organizations. Joni is the author of Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, and Be Happier (UPNE, 2017) and the recently re-released Another Bad-Dog Book: Essays on Life, Love, and Neurotic Human Behavior. In work and life, Joni sees through a macro lens, seeking the extraordinary in the ordinary, the wonder, humor, and mystery in everyday moments.
