Filling the Blank Page
Whether you’re a beginner, experienced or “lapsed” writer, this workshop can help jump-start writing memoirs, fiction or creative nonfiction through a series of timed “writing practices” based on Natalie Goldberg’s classic “Writing Down the Bones”. Through this time-proven method, you will learn how to trust your own writing voice and quell the scathing self-critic that insists your writing is not good enough. Participants can expect lots of in-class writing and will leave with a number of stories for personal use or for publication.

Travel Right...Travel Write!
Do you love to travel but find yourself grumbling over the high cost of airfare, hotels, and meals? Did you know that you can visit exotic destinations around the globe on someone else's nickel or travel on your own and earn back your expenses simply by writing about your experience? Travel writers do both all the time, and this class shows you how. During these sessions, you'll acquire writerly skills such as interviewing, querying, and spinning stories from assignments. Through in-class and take-home exercises, you'll learn the nuts and bolts of writing a story that publications will snap right up, and you'll glean a few travel tips to boot.
Join Katherine Tandy Brown, successful freelance writer for over 20 years, for this exciting course.
