(Hill Center) Getting Started: Creative Writing

Loading Events

Before the holiday madness sets in, why not take a personal breather? In just two Saturday afternoons, you can explore several forms of creative writing. By jump-starting with fun exercises, we will circumvent the analytic brain and give imagination a chance to thrive. You will receive tips on how to free up memories and experiences and use them as inspiration for memoir, fiction, poems, creative nonfiction or journal-writing. Hallmarks of the workshop include in-class assignments, opportunity to read your writing—or not, as you choose—and receive positive, helpful feedback that will point the way toward your writing talents.

She has published short fiction, judged the national Poetry Out Loud recitation contest, and directed a Dylan Thomas play with 18 actors playing 60 parts.
