October 2018: Revising Your Writing

Writing is revision!  Ask any writer.  Once you have a draft that is structured well, it’s time to use the elements of craft to turn it into an engaging piece that a reader will have a hard time putting down.  This class will help you polish your work so it best conveys your original intent. We’ll focus on craft issues such point of view, dialogue, setting, character development, and effective use of language. Students should bring a work-in-progress, fiction or non-fiction, to class.

November 9, 2018: Freeing the Writing Within

Come and play! 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’ll use the class to develop aspects of your piece.  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.
