Write What You Care About: A Four-Part Online Writing Workshop

When we put to paper what we most care about, chances are we do our best writing, reach off the page, and touch readers. In this four-part workshop we'll use in-class readings, discussions, and writing exercises to help each of us clarify the things we feel most passionately about, we're most curious about, and care most deeply about. We'll write about those topics and experiences in a variety of narrative story forms. It might be through personal essays about nature's wonders, or fantasy fiction allegories with fanciful creatures, or  memoir sketches about real-life loved ones. Come discover, write, and share with others. What do you most care about? All levels of experience welcome.

This is an online four-part series offered via Zoom. Access to a computer or other device and the internet is necessary to participate. A commitment to attend all sessions is requested. Space is limited and registration is required. Please only register once for the first session - this will automatically register you for the entire series. A Zoom invite and any other necessary details will be sent out to all registrants before the first class.
