New Orleans author Constance Adler will lead a six-week creative writing workshop starting May 7 at 7 p.m.

The Bayou Writing Workshop is both an opportunity to begin fresh work and to move an existing project further along.

The group meets once a week for two hours for in-class assignments designed to generate spontaneous writing. There is also a period of guided meditation. Students are welcome to bring in portions of ongoing manuscripts for feedback from the group. The class is open to any genre. Cost is $300.

Adler is a magazine journalist and author of the book “My Bayou.”

Returning students may email to reserve a seat. Others should call (504) 312-3560 to discuss their work and experience or for the workshop location.
