Jodie Toohey, Wordsy Woman, and Midwest Writing Center have teamed up again to get you started on your writing journey on Thursday, May 31st, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at MWC. 
Jodie will talk about how to get into a writing practice, how to get over the mental stumbling blocks that may be in your way, and, new to this edition, lead you through some free-writing exercises so you have words in hand when you leave and plenty to keep you going long after the session.
This workshop is free & open to the public, but reservations are appreciated: contact us at or 309-732-7330 to let us know you’re planning to attend.
Join us for a trip back to the basics. Whether you’re just starting out with your writing practice, or whether you’re looking for some fresh inspiration for writing you’ve been doing for some time, join us on 5/31 to get started.
This workshop is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Regional Development Authority and the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
