Red Umbrella Project offers free, peer-facilitated Memoir Writing Workshops for individuals with experience in the sex trades. In our workshops, participants generate new writing in class and at home (handwritten or typed are both fine), build their writing skills and confidence, share their stories and get feedback from peers, and ultimately publish a piece in our biannual literary journal Prose & Lore. We also offer a Page to Stage workshop for people who complete the workshop and want to read their work at one of our storytelling events.
We offer eight-week long intensive workshops in spring and fall, and drop-in workshops summer and winter. We are also available to bring the workshops to your community space – email us at email@example.com to discuss.
Winter Drop-In Workshops
Not sure if you want to commit to eight weeks? Want to meet other workshop members and try it on for size? Only in town for a little while? Check out our drop-in workshops, which take place at our office. Each session meets from 7 to 9 pm at the RedUP office at 147 Prince Street in Downtown Brooklyn (close to the Manhattan Bridge and the Q, B, R trains).
The upcoming dates for the sessions are:

Space is limited for each session, so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
