Program Description


We regret to say that this workshop is cancelled at the request of the presenter. 


This is a 5-session workshop that meets on Tuesdays on ZOOM at 7:00pm-9pm. All sessions will be held on ZOOM. You only need to sign up once for the full series.

The aim of the workshop is to bring forth stories from the participants and shape them using vivid concrete language. Being a world traveler is not required, as every journey, carefully observed, has tremendous value.

Travel writing in general will be discussed with examples from literature. Participants will do writing activities in the workshop that they may enlarge during the week.

Susannah Risley, a writer who lives in Schenectady, will lead the group. She has over 20 years’ experience facilitating writing workshops in NYS libraries, as well as homeless shelters, prisons, and nature preserves.
