Learn writing skills that will enable you to capture real people and life experiences and turn them into engaging, readable stories. This two-hour class will show you how to include vivid, imagery and sensory details and pull your reader into the narrative. Guided writing prompts will help you incorporate effective writing techniques as you go. Go home with a mini memoir or a passage to use in a larger work. Students are invited to send in five double spaced pages of a work-in-progress prior to class for written critique from the instructor. Students should bring computer or pen and paper and come prepared to write.
