Need to write? To share ideas and experiences? Need help on a writing project to make it sing? Need to explore how, when, or where to publish? This workshop is for you! We’ll discuss – and practice – putting words down on paper, shaping and revising, getting our work ready for the world. We’ll read excerpts from other poets, essayists, fiction writers, discovering their passions, styles and publications. At the end of the session, we’ll share something we needed to write during the class.
Join Marge Barrett, local author and poet, for her last writing workshop of the season. She’ll again be sharing her knowledge of writing and encouraging participants to share their ideas and their own writing.
