Welcome to the Table

Alabama Writers Connect is dedicated to teaching, mentoring, and connecting aspiring and established writers together in a warm, constructive environment. Classes are affordable and inviting, and the kinship you feel with fellow writers will make you want to keep coming back both to our table and to your writing desk.

Have you always wanted to try your hand at writing but didn’t know where to begin? Did you think about applying to a college but it was too expensive and you only wanted to write? Do you write incognito and need some constructive feedback?

Or have you already taken classes in writing and need an educated, well-read audience to give you valuable feedback as beta readers?

Then we are the community for you. Join us at the table.

Upcoming Summer Session(s) begin July 9 (Tuesdays) and July 11 (Thursdays). Six weeks. Deadline for reserving your spot with payment for July’s course is July 1.  Make checks payable to Alabama Writers Connect, 109 Cape Cod Circle, Alabaster, AL 35007 Or Use Venmo: @Denise-Trimm Cost for the 6-week course is $225

Fiction and Essay Writing Workshops–In a small class of no more than 6 or 7 per class, you write weekly and share with your peers. On the workshop night, we take turns giving constructive criticism and helping each other recognize our talents and hone our skills.

Need an Introductory Course? While many of our writers are people who have had writing instruction, Denise can meet with you and catch you up on the basics. This can be offered in person, on line, or in small groups. Just reach out to Denise and she will work with you to meet you where you are. Tuition varies. Ask for a quote.

New Service! One-On-One Consultation-You submit up to ten pages of work for personal reading, then we meet at a coffee shop or we meet via Facetime/Google Hangout/Skype for up to one hour to discuss the work you submitted and how it fits into your goals as a writer. Consulting fee: $50 per submission/session. Consultations will be held on Saturday or Sunday mornings before noon. Deadline for submissions is Thursdays at 6:00 pm. I will schedule up to 3 sessions per weekend. Email me if you are interested.
