Creative Writing Bootcamp for Adults, Four Tuesday Evenings - FEE is $20 for four-week course.

This four-week course is focused on breaking down hurdles to creative writing and sharing tools for success. Each class will include short readings, discussion, and writing. $20 for the four-week course, Tuesday nights from 7-8 pm at the library. Taught by Sarah Starr Murphy, freelance writer and editor for The Forge Literary Magazine.
Tuesday, March 26th - Week 1: Inspiration and Finding Time – How do you find the time to begin a writing practice? What if you find time and lack anything to write about? We’ll discuss ways to jumpstart your creativity and set individual goals for the course.
Tuesday, April 2nd - Week 2: Drafting, Drafting, Drafting – We’ll discuss what to do with a first draft (write!) and what not to do (worry!), with examples, strategies, and ways to get unstuck. Participants will be encouraged to write in whatever genre or form most interests them.
Tuesday, April 9th - Week 3: The Magic of Revision – We’ll take a look at the secret to all great writing – revision. We’ll discuss the difference between revising and editing, strategies for revising your own work, and how to choose a critique partner.
Tuesday, April 16th - Week 4: The Wide World of Publication – This final week will include discussion of what to do with your writing when it’s finished. We will take a look at self-publishing, traditional publishing, and other alternatives for sharing your work, including writer’s groups and open mics. We will also make time for any writer who wishes to share a selection of their project with the group.
