Defensive Driving (for Point Reduction)
Your life story doesn't have to have been overly dramatic in order to write a memoir. If you think your childhood was too normal to write about, the rest of us would like to know what that was like! In these classes, through in-class and at-home writing, you'll recount and record a few of those tales you've been telling your family, children and grand-kids for years. Whether you choose to write about a specific experience or to cover a number of years' worth, you'll learn the skills necessary to organize and craft a written legacy for yourself, your family, and/or publication. By the end of the series, you'll have a great start on your memoir in hand.

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.
September 20, Saturday, 9a-Noon, New River Campus
September 27, Saturday 9a-Noon, Beaufort Campus

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.
