In this eight-week workshop, beginning writers will have the chance to explore three different genres: memoir writing, short fiction, and poetry. Each week participants will be given a writing assignment and several readings, to be followed by a critique of each participants’ assignment. Participants will learn about voice, point of view, dialogue, description, imagery, and sound. By the end of this workshop, everyone will have written one personal memoir, one short-short story, and two original poems, and developed a greater understanding of their own writing interests. Note: No meeting on April 8th.
