Title: Creative Writing – Utilizing Episodes from Your Own Life

Type of Workshop: Writing

Instructor: Linda Busby Parker

Date: Feb 23, 2019

Time:  Saturday 10 am -2 pm

Price: $85

This workshop is designed to “mine” your own life for episodes that could morph into short stories, memoirs, or early chapters of novels. Examples will be provided and discussed in workshop, and participants will experiment with various methodologies by in-class writing. It will be enlightening to explore the riches in our own lives. Each of us has unique experiences—and there is only ONE person exactly like YOU.  Bring paper (a notebook or loose-leaf paper) and a pencil or pen. Come with your ideas and your questions. Leave with some writing you might want to pursue. Come to learn, but also come to enjoy! Bring a sack lunch and a drink (or drinks may be purchased from the vending machine). If you’ve ever wanted to write, but weren’t sure where to begin, or if you’ve begun writing creatively, and want to learn more, this workshop is for you. You will leave knowing how you can retrieve and utilize your own life as writing material.
