Discovering Your Writers Voice (4-week class)

Your natural writing voice reflects your own life experience and perspective.  In this class, we’ll tap into the various voices within you that you can draw on for your writing.  Whether you’re writing personal material or fiction, exploring these voices can support the development of your authentic voice and make your writing ring true for you and your reader.  Using exercises, prompts, and selected readings, students will explore the rich material within them and bring it to the page.

Wednesday June 5, 12, 19, 26, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Freeing ther Writer Within (3-hour workshop)

Whether you’re new to writing or more experienced, come to this class to open up to the writer within.  In a supportive and playful environment, we’ll use prompts which incorporate music, images, and objects to dive deep into your subject matter.  This style of writing will tap the juicy material inside you.  If you have a piece you’re working on, you can use our time to develop it.  If you’re brand new to writing, the prompts will help you uncover the story you need to tell. Appropriate for all levels of interest. Bring a bag lunch.  Drinks will be provided.
