Bar Scott: For the Love of Writing

Bar Scott: For the Love of Writing

April 28, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Calling all writers! If you’ve been writing or wanting to write for years but haven’t felt comfortable sharing your work with others yet, Bar Scott’s workshop is the place to start. And if you’re a writer working on a new project or writing in a new genre and you’re looking for other writers who will give you meaningful feedback to move your project forward, this is the workshop for you. Bar creates a safe, creative, inspiring place to share your writing and your questions about writing with other writers. Exercises and discussion will inspire you to write more, be afraid less. Each attendee will have the opportunity to meet with Bar for a one-on-one session by phone or Skype in the weeks that follow the festival. If you’d like to communicate with Bar before signing up, please do by writing her at

And she has recorded 7 albums of original songs as well as an audio version of her memoir.

“I found your presentation spellbinding. If I hadn’t already written a memoir, your workshop of the morning would spur me on to start one…Thanks for your heartfelt time with us. You always pull the best from us and surprise us about ourselves!

-Maria Weber, memoirist and workshop attendee, Buena Vista, CO
