Writing Workshop

Tuesday, March 6, 2012 - 2:15pm - 3:15pm

Photograph of person writing in a journal"I could write a book!" You probably have said it or at least thought it. How about at least trying to write a short story or even a paragraph about a memorable experience in your life, pleasant or unpleasant? Hopefully I can get you started.

I will share with you my personal throughts about writing, and yes, reading as well. Then there will be an opportunity to work with pencil and paper. Bring your own supplies. You may bring something you've already written for my critique if you wish. Let's make this an enjoyable session. I will answer any questions -- and no tests will be given or grades recorded. I look forward to seeing you.
