In this 4-week series, we’ll use short writing exercises to trigger your creativity while expanding your writing skill. We’ll practice writing about places, characters, and scenes with short assignments designed to be as fun as they are helpful in finding your voice as a writer. Some writing exercises will take place in class and others will be “Field Trip” assignments between class meetings. The workshop is open to all fiction and nonfiction writers, ages 12-112. Registration is required and opens two weeks in advance. Register at the link below for the entire 4-week series.

We will…

Explore capturing characters with telling details. 
Conveying a sense of place.
Dig into “show don’t tell” with action in scenes.
