Writing From Charlemagne – A Workshop for Writers and Others

August 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Writing from Charlemagne – A Workshop for Writers and Others

“You must carry mountains in your brain” Oliver Wendell Holmes told Herman Melville about writing in the Berkshires.

Join award-winning local author and Arrowhead Writer-In-Residence Jana Laiz atop Herman Melville’s mountain muse at Bascom Lodge. Melville called Mt. Greylock “Charlemagne,” the king of mountains and it was this view that inspired some of his greatest works. 

As we take inspiration from the breathtaking beauty that surrounds us, Jana will guide the group, using writing prompts and engaging writing activities to take our fiction, fantasy, essays or stories to the next level. 

Friday, August 24 1pm-4pm, $35

Register here. 

Preregister requested. Walk-ins welcome

Food and drink available at Bascom Lodge.
