"The past is never dead. It's not even past." William Faulkner in "Requiem for a Nun" We have all heard the adage that time changes everything. In this creative writing workshop, we will consider the effects of time as it relates to our poems, stories, memoirs, and essays. This course is a perfect place for new writers to begin and for experienced writers to continue their works or to create new pieces for potential publication. The instructor will write comments on one piece of each participant’s writing every week. If available, please bring an example of your writing to the first session. (A limited enrollment class)

This class provides resources to strengthen your story and encouragement to develop your own storytelling “voice.” Reading recommendations are offered, along with tactics for cultivating memory, working around barriers, and managing the process.
