The workshop will offer a series of writing prompts and moderated discussion. New prompts will be published at least once a week and are designed to help writers improve their grammar and style, overcome writer's block and unlock their creative potential. The first writing prompt, "Getting to Know You," gives workshop members a fun way to get acquainted with fellow writers, and it's a simple challenge: "Create an avatar - a fictional character based on the real you."
