Shameless Self-Promotion for Locals

Do you have a story to tell? Stories last forever! Especially well-told stories.

“Creative Nonfiction: Writing My Real Life Stories” is designed not only for people who want to write and preserve family stories, but also for aspiring writers wanting to learn the basics of creative nonfiction. Creative nonfiction is the telling of true stories in an artful and compelling way. Sessions (4 classes) offer the fun of recalling and reliving memories, as well as solid instruction and hands-on experience—from that scary first blank page to a completed story. Scenemaking, character, dialogue, description, and detail—we study it all!

Write your story; have it coil-bound (or framed!) for a holiday gift! Do it now!
