Explore Creative Non-Fiction: A Three-Part Series
Whether you write memoir or essays or journal articles, apply the craft of story and poetry to your fact-based stories. Engage your reader with compelling characters, dialogue, gesture, action scenes, story line, and sensory and figurative images. We will discuss example stories and engage in skill-building activities. Open to writers of all levels. Space is limited and registration is required.
