Creative Writing Workshop For Ages 16 and Up: Offered by Literary Agent and Teacher Kathi Paton
Is there a story you’ve always wanted to tell but never quite got around to writing? Join us at the Farmstead this fall for a six-week course on Saturdays. In a supportive workshop environment, you’ll learn techniques for creating successful stories. Through readings of your work, group discussion and examples from published authors, we’ll study the importance of structure, characterization, imagery and voice. Bring an idea for a fiction or nonfiction story that you can develop and share.
