In this series of 90-minute writing workshops, we will explore some of the different genres of writing–journaling, memoir, personal essays, fiction and poetry. Each week you will be given a writing prompt to help you get started. After each period of writing, you will have an opportunity to read aloud and share your work with the others, if you like.
These weekly sessions will give you an idea of what kind of writing you would like to do, how to go about it, and how to keep up a good practice of writing.
