Brand-new Writing Together session, January 2023

Calling all word people!

My brand-new “Writing Together” session is now on the schedule for January, and I’d love to see you in the Zoom room! Details below. Click here for more information, along with info on my other half-day workshops both this month and in November. And, please forward to anyone who might be interested. 

Dive deep – see where the prompts take you

Writing Together: January 7-13, 2023, 10-11 am CT and 7-8 pm CT every day (note time zone)

In this brand-new Writing Together session, we’ll convene in our Zoom Room for one-hour sessions twice-daily (drop in for one or both a day, or whatever suits your schedule). Each hour will open with a brief reading and continue with a 20-minute prompt related to the theme of the reading. Each day’s theme will be different, and all are designed to wake up the magical inner writer who lives within us all. The last ten minutes of each session will be reserved for anyone who feels like reading their prompt aloud, not for feedback but for applause and appreciation.

The Writing Together session was inspired by my own yearly practice of a week devoted solely to generating new ideas, having fun, and playing around with cool new prompts. There’s something so comforting about knowing that a whole group –up to 30 of us in any given session– will be writing together at the same time, each of us in our little Zoom boxes. Come have fun and see what you come up with! Fee: $200, payable via Venmo, personal check, or Paypal (scroll below for details).

Bonus: Weekly writing prompts will be emailed to you every Friday for one month after class.

Words by Winter Half-day Writing Workshops: Could your creative spirit use a recharge? Come join me on my (virtual) porch for an exhilarating, fun, intensive workshop! All my 3.5-hour workshops are taught via Zoom and designed for writers of any and all experience. No preparation or skills required. Workshop offerings are regularly updated (check out the brand-new The Intuitive Leap class), and I’d also be happy to design one specifically for your writing group. Each workshop requires a minimum of five participants and is strictly capped at ten.

Half-day workshop fee: $100. Note that I also offer a pay-as-you’re-able option to participants under financial duress (I’ve been there myself), up to two per class, from $10-$95, no questions asked.

Registration and payment: To register for an individual workshop, email me at or simply send payment and note which class you’re registering for. Registration is tentative until payment is received. You may send payment via Venmo to @Alison-McGhee-1, Zelle to, Paypal to, or by personal check. Please email me with any questions.
