Shelburne resident Caitlin Downey and South Burlington’s Sue Roupp warm up along with the weather in two new workshops at the Writers’ Barn beginning in April. Downey invites women scribes to loosen up with writing prompts in Wine, Women, and Words on alternating Friday evenings beginning April 19 at 6 pm. Roupp welcomes morning larks to join her in building confidence and craft with creative writing exercises and story development at the Writers’ Barn on Wednesday mornings from 10 am to noon. Come out of hibernation, spread your wings, and free your inner writer in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Visit the Writers Barn on the web for other classes and more information: www.windridgebooksofvt.com or call Lin at 985-3091.
