Unexpected Gifts: A Zoom Writing Workshop

The saying goes, "Good things come in small packages." And sometimes blessings come in no package at all. As we approach an unconventional holiday season and the end of 2020, we'll gather to write about people and experiences that have brought us joy, hope, warmth, and wonder - or whatever we've needed to encourage and sustain us. All levels of writing experience welcome.

All library programs are free and open to the public. Space is limited and registration is required .This is an online workshop offered via Zoom. You must have a computer or device with Internet access in order to participate in this class. Zoom meeting details that will enable you to join will be sent out to you before class.

Facilitator, Jen Case teaches writing workshops and leads literary discussions at libraries and senior living communities around Monroe County. She also presents with the group Women of the Well as a storyteller, dancer, and singer. Her passion is creating unique programs that help people find their voices and share their stories in a welcoming environment. Having received a B.A. in English from Alfred University and a M.S. in Education from SUNY College at Brockport, Jen has spent most of her adult life teaching in one capacity or another. She worked as Director of Programming at Writers & Books for a time and taught creative writing workshops at Borders Books. She also taught English at East High School, her alma mater, until the birth of her oldest child in 2005. She lives in Rochester with her husband and four school-age children, all of whom attend RCSD schools.

Rochester Writes is hosted by the Arts & Literature Division and supported by the Suressa Forbes Fund for Local Writers and the Friends & Foundation of the Rochester Public Library. Please contact Carol.Moldt@libraryweb.org for additional information.
