What You'll Get

For people who have lived and worked and want to write about their childhood as well as their more recent past. Whether you are a published writer or last wrote in a childhood diary, you are welcome in this class. Mark Twain said, “The difference between the almost right word & the right word is the difference between lightning and lightning bug.” Finding the right word is the goal of this workshop. 

Suggested weekly assignments will be given to help trigger memories. Along with weekly writing in class, everyone can bring in 2 pages to be critiqued each week by classmates and teacher. The teacher will also take home weekly work, which will be read and returned the following week. 

Students who participate are eligible to partake in the December student reading.

Location Instructions: Students will need to check in with reception, and on their first visit they will need to check in with the Membership Desk to get their program participant card for entry. Reception will direct them to the room where their class is being held.
