Get that story out of your head and onto the page (or screen) in this supportive workshop designed for writers of all levels of experience.  Whether you are outlining a book proposal or gathering stories for loved ones, you'll receive weekly writing prompts that will be used to build stand-alone essays or pieces of a longer project. Each participant will receive a one-on-one session with the instructor to discuss their personal goals and how to tackle large and small projects. This class is meant for those pursuing memoir writing and other creative non-fiction projects.
