On Saturday, April 14, from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., Crystal will be facilitating a writing workshop titled “Say What?” with the topic being Writing Dialogue. This event is open to everyone 16 and older. The cost is $50 per person. Please register online to attend. 



The workshop will be held at Women Writing for (a) Change, 6906 Plainfield Road, in Silverton.

About Women Writing for (a) Change

Women Writing for (a) Change® offer supportive writing circles to nurture and celebrate the individual voice. Classes encourage self-expression through the art of writing and other creative processes. In our writing circles and specialty classes, participants explore and work in a variety of genres, including journal-writing, poetry, prose, essay, song-writing, fiction, and more.


While many participants have published, our focus is on process rather than product. We believe that practicing and sharing our writing in a non-competitive community enriches and enhances our art and our lives, and that writing can be a tool for transformation and change.


Although most classes are for women or young women, occasional classes include men and boys. If you are looking for a welcoming environment where you can explore your writing and your life, join us at Women Writing for (a) Change!
