"What's Your Story," a one-day retreat co-presented by Janet Benton and Lynn Rosen of Open Book, will take place in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania on 12-13-14. Janet will teach two workshops that day: "Find Your Unique Vision to Deepen Your Writing" and "Develop Your Stories Naturally Through Scenes." Here's where you can sign up!

Janet will also teach a workshop on March 7, 2015 at the annual conference of the Pearl Buck Writing Center, near Doylestown, PA.

This winter, she'll also be teaching a beginning writers' workshop one Sunday afternoon at the Glenside Free Library in Glenside, PA.

Once final details are available, they'll be added here.

While ongoing classes are on hiatus so Janet can finish a historical novel, special events will continue to occur! Please join the mailing list to find out about them as soon as information is available.

To enroll or ask questions, please email (see CONTACT tab to right).

PAYMENT POLICY: Payment is accepted by check or via PayPal (see link). As is true for every educational institution, at The Word Studio, each person's enrollment affects whether or not a class or workshop will run. A commitment to take a workshop indicates a commitment to paying the class fee in full. So that we can honor our commitments to our teachers, fees are nonrefundable except in the case of a medical emergency on the part of the enrollee or close family member.

A deposit of half is requested at registration, and the remainder is due on email notification prior to the start of class. (If you're registering close to the class's starting date, a single payment will be requested.)
