Writers’ Workshop is for everyone.  We all have a history of family stories, professional stories, memories of events to tell, and issues to explore.  We will meet for eight weeks, two hours at a time.  We will usually write two times in a session. I will have printed copies of materials that are relevant to developing writing skills. We will compose a chapbook with our final pieces. We will meet in person and on Zoom.

There will be a cost of $10.00 to cover printing and mailing.

Janet Cowperthwaite has worked with Writers’ Workshop in her second-grade class and in a graduate writing class. The workshop that Janet has been leading in Senior College has evolved from those experiences, and she feels her job is to be facilitator, encourager, and cheerleader.

Janet graduated from Houlton High School in 1959 and from the University of Maine in 1963 with a degree in English and credits to be certified as an elementary teacher. She earned a master’s in education, also from UMaine in 1992.


COVID REQUIREMENTS:  Masks are required in classrooms, unless waived by the instructor. We recommend carrying a mask at all times while on the campus to use as needed.
