WRANGLING RESEARCH: In Conversation with Bestselling Novelist Christina Baker Kline

February 21, 2-4 PM

What does it take to immerse readers in a world long gone? What are the keys to unlocking the past on the page? How do you find your way through the mountain of resources and reference material? And how do you take all the facts you have gathered and turn them into a rich fictional world? Join Christina Baker Kline, bestselling author of The Exiles and Orphan Train, in conversation with TWC founder/director Judith Lindbergh as they discuss the struggles and secrets of researching and writing a truly immersive historical novel.

We are grateful to Christina for generously donating her fee for this event to The Writers Circle
so that we can continue to develop enriching programs for the writing community during this difficult time.

2021 Summer Creative Writing Intensives for Teens Who Love to Write!

This summer, more than ever before, we’re ready for anything at the Summer Intensives.  For 2021, given the uncertainty of the coronavirus, we are preparing for all contingencies. If we can meet safely on campus at Drew University in Madison, NJ, we absolutely will.  And our students from farther away can still join us via Zoom (at virtual program pricing). If meeting in-person is impossible, we are planning a fantastic fully virtual Intensive, just as we did last summer.

Whatever happens, this summer will be filled with creativity, friendship, fun, and lots of writing!  Join us!

Early Bird Pricing until March 1

The Writers Circle Goes GLOBAL!

If there’s any silver lining to this very difficult year or so, it’s that “virtual reality” has broken all geographic boundaries. In the last several months, students have joined us from all around the USA and far–FAR–beyond.  Check out our mini-world tour voiced by TWC guest instructor and voice actor Chip Davis.  We’ll honored and thrilled that so many wonderful writers have found us!
