Sunday, September 30th

Have you always thought about writing, but don’t know how to start? Do you have ideas for stories or personal narratives you want to capture on the page? Whether you want to write personal narratives, record your family history, or write a work of fiction, this two-part course will help you take the ideas you’ve been thinking up and put them down on paper.

In the first class: Writing 101 hosted by Leah Singer, we will talk about how to start the process of writing. Students will leave with a focus, tools to help them write, and an assignment for the next session. In the second class, participants will have an opportunity to share their written work in a workshop environment. We will discuss writing problems and obstacles, and talk about a plan for continuing to develop your writing project.

This is a two-day workshop. You will register for either: Wed., August 29 and Thurs., Sept. 13, 6 – 8 p.m. OR Sundays, Sept. 9 and Sept. 30, 2 – 4 p.m.
