Below you will find a sampling of some of my past workshops and events. Due to Covid, many were canceled, but I am hopeful that my programming will resume soon. Please contact me directly for inquiries and bookings: rosekindness@gmail.com.

FLASH! FICTION WORKSHOP
Berkeley Library, North Berkeley Branch
1170 The Alameda
Saturday 11/16/19, 3:00-4:15 pm
FREE!
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the exciting genre of flash fiction. This style of writing demands brevity, prioritizing intensity of vision over plot and character development. It serves as an exciting and accessible point of entry for those overwhelmed by the thought of writing a full-length story and as a catalyst to spur further creative efforts.

ADULT WRITERS GROUP MONTHLY MEET-UP
Saturday, 2/22/20, 3:15-4:30 pm
Private home (inquire directly for address)
Sliding scale: $20-30

Each meeting, we will focus on a particular style, theme, genre, approach to, or element of writing. I will offer insights and a guided prompt to direct writing during the remainder of the group. Participants will be invited to share (if desired) their work with others. This group is for *everyone*: for “writers” and for those who don’t identify as such. It is open to all who are looking for a supportive, safe, encouraging space for creative expression and empowerment. Older teens are welcome (16 and up).
