Overheard at a party: “I’m a writer, too. I’ve just never written anything!”
If this describes you, the Writers’ Workshop is here to motivate the writer in you.
Often the most difficult part of writing is getting started. Half the battle can be won with a topic and a deadline. Once you put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, the words will flow. Awaken the dormant writer in you through memoir, fiction or commentary at our twice-monthly workshops. A one-word assignment to be interpreted, as you desire, as long as that word appears at least once in your piece, will be due the following session.
Writing is limited to three typewritten pages but may be shorter. Your writing will be read aloud either by you or, if desired, someone else. A short discussion will follow each reading.
For the first meeting, bring an article you have written on the topic, “Triangle.” Don’t concern yourself with the length – it can be very short. This is just a starting point.
Professional writer, editor and writing teacher, Sandy Jacobs will be facilitating this informal method she developed for writing classes offered by the Community Center in the past.
There is no charge to attend but you must pre-register. A maximum of 12 participants will be accepted for this on-going 10 session class.
