Seeking Lighter Hearts: A Zoom Writing Workshop

January, with its long, cold nights and post-holiday letdown can leave our spirits flagging a bit. In this class we'll gather to shake off our winter blues by writing and sharing about the joy and beauty we observe in the world around us, even sometimes amidst sorrow. Discussion and writing prompts will guide our efforts to produce a poem, a reflection, or a short story to share. All levels of experience welcome.

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

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.
