How to Start a Book (Fiction or Nonfiction) From Scratch Workshop w David Biespiel | Apr 3 - May 8 | In-Person

Every writer faces the blank page and wonders, "How can I get started?" No one method is better than another, but some steps are key to help you find the spark. What's the secret? Working small. Curious to learn about that? The goal of this special six week workshop is to help you get your idea in motion. Work closely with the founder of the Attic Institute and two-time Oregon Book Award winner David Biespiel to get your new writing idea off the ground. By the end of the workshop, you'll be much further along than you could ever imagine.

A Statement of Our Values

The Attic Institute of Arts and Letters opposes the legitimation of bigotry, hate, and misinformation. As a studio for writers, we do not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind. We embrace and celebrate our shared pursuit of literature and languages as essential to crossing the boundaries of difference. To that end, we seek to maintain a creative environment in which every employee, faculty member, and student feels safe, respected, and comfortable — even while acknowledging that poems, stories, and essays delve into uncomfortable subjects. We accept the workshop as a place to question ourselves and to empathize with complex identities. We understand that to know the world is to write the world. Therefore, we reaffirm our commitment to literary pursuits and shared understanding by affirming diversity and open inquiry.
