This fall, treat yourself to a day with author/columnist Bob Welch, immersed in specific ways to:

Write more vividly, powerfully and engagingly.

Understand the true essence of story.

Create new motivation to write that will snowball.

Enjoy not only writing’s destinations, but it’s often-amazing journey.

Join us for a newly designed writers workshop aimed at beginners and veterans, fiction and non-fiction writers, young and old alike.


You’ll get:

— A full day of instruction, discussion and writing challenges.

— A pre-workshop critique of 1,500 words of your work.

— A notebook stuffed with cool, helpful information.

— A lunch from Johnny Ocean’s Grille, featuring by-the-sea Caribbean cuisine.

All in an atmosphere that’s fun, welcoming, relaxing and non-competitive.


Is writing easy? No.

Is getting better at it easy? No.

Is the workshop going to demand time, attention and (some) money? Yes.

But since 2005, Welch has inspired more than one thousand writing students in 35

workshops. Here’s what they’re saying:


“I have never experienced such a workshop where I was pampered, validated for who I am, inspired and invigorated.”
— Carole Linneman Eugene

“Bob gave me one of the most precious gifts anyone has ever given me: validation as a writer! ”
— Cara Zane McKenzie, Eugene

“An inspirational kick in the pants.”

— Kirk Kneeland, Eugene


Please join us Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018 at the Eugene Garden Club for a workshop that will help you take your writing to all new levels. And help you enjoy the writing process more deeply.
