Creative Non-Fiction Writing Workshop & Tapas Lunch
Life is a journey. So, that’s the theme of this special writing workshop. Whether it’s a trip to grandma’s house or a cross-country bike ride, every journey we take creates lasting memories, changes our outlook and shapes our understanding of the world.
We’ll begin by reading and discussing nonfiction essays focused on the theme of transformational travel. Next, you will do guided and independent writing exercises (for 45 – 60 minutes), designed to help you delve into your funny, frightening, and freaky travel experiences and explore the ways that these trips have transformed you and altered your perception of your place in the world.
Since culinary exploration is such a wonderful part of traveling this workshop will include a tapas lunch! After we do some writing we’ll head over to a tapas restaurant where you can share your class writing over a festive meal.
Please note, registration for the class means that you will participate in the lunch as well. (Meat and vegetarian options will be available).
Writing workshop: 9:30 -12:00 at Flashpoint Gallery (916 G Street, NW. Closest Metro: Metro Center)
Lunch: 12:30 – 2:00 PM at La Tasca (722 7th Street, NW) (Price for lunch is $25. This includes 3 tapas, tax and tip.)
