The River Arts Writing Lab is designed to support a range of writing experience, goals, and genres. The emphasis is on providing a means for the participants to share their work, and to give and receive constructive, well-thought-out feedback.
A webpage is provided for those writers who are ready to have their work critiqued (the work can be at any stage of development). Posting manuscripts prior to the meetings will allow more time for careful consideration and productive discussion. Together we’ll develop guidelines for providing respectful and useful feedback.
A period of less structured time for reading, writing, or sharing will also be a part of the meetings.
The aim of the Writing Lab is to support each other by giving and receiving helpful commentary. It’s a cooperative effort. The group welcomes ideas for other activities that encourage and expand our writing skills.

Fabio Nascimento – Professor FuáDuring the last twenty-eight years I have practiced the art of capoeira in its entirety. I have mastered the martial art, the tricks, and the dances. I have also mastered capoeira’s percussion instruments as well as the singing techniques and rituals. During the last fifteen years I have taught and performed for people in Brazil, Germany, and currently in the United States. I have lived in Vermont since 2009, and during this time I have introduced capoeira to over three thousand people. I have also founded a capoeira group, Jagube Capoeira. We’ve hosted two international events with two days of workshops, rituals, and dinners and the participation of more than three hundred people from Brazil, United States, Canada, Spain, Colombia, Venezuela, and Israel. Jagube Capoeira Method: Developing Cultural Competence Through Capoeira.
