What to bring to the workshop?

Bring along 3 or so doublespaced pages to read aloud for appreciation and responses. This can be a new beginning, a revision - anything you want to share for feedback. And of course bring something to write on/with.

Also, bring a brown bag lunch. We will have coffee and snacks waiting for you.

It will be a fun, meaningful time.


Reading Good Naked by Joni B. Cole prior to the workshop is highly recommended. It is not only fun and entertaining but also a great primer for the workshop. The book can be ordered at:


About Joni B. Cole:

Author and writing teacher Joni B. Cole has spent much of her career helping people write more, write better, and enjoy a more productive and positive creative process. She believes there is a writer in anyone who chooses to follow that path, and that writing and sharing our stories is not only personally meaningful, but one of the most powerful forms of social activism.

Joni's new book Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, and Be Happier is included in Poets & Writers magazine's list of “Best Books for Writers, and she is the author of the acclaimed book Toxic Feedback: Helping Writers Survive and Thrive (“I can't imagine a better guide to [writing's] rewards and perils than this fine book,” American Book Review ). Joni is also the author of Another Bad-Dog Book: Essays on Life, Love, and Neurotic Human Behavior , and the three-volume “This Day” series which invited hundreds of women across America and from all walks of life to share the reality of their daily lives. She teaches in the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program at Dartmouth College, serves on the creative writing faculty of the New Hampshire Institute of Art, and is founder of the Writer's Center of White River Junction, Vermont. Joni is also a frequent contributor to The Writer magazine, and leads expressive writing workshops for a diversity of social service programs.

Joni has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and USA Fellowship Award.
