Event description

Description

"We write to taste life twice: in the moment and in retrospect." - Anais Nin

Come spend a cozy Sunday afternoon indoors in a supportive and structured half-day personal essay/memoir writing class. This class is perfect for those who can't commit to a 6 or 8 week class but would like to re-commit to their writing practice

What do I have in store for you? We'll begin with some prompt-driven in-class exercises and some informal sharing. Afterwards those of us who wish to delve deeper may workshop a short, finished (5-7 page) work or excerpt that you bring to class. If you don't have a finished piece to bring, you can help others by giving them constructive feedback, or you can simply listen and learn. We will conclude by taking stock of our creative goals and expectations as 2017 comes to an end.

This class will give each writer the opportunity to create new work, collaborate and experiment in a supportive environment and connect with a local writing community

This is a non fiction workshop but it is open to writers of all skill levels and genre, male and female. Limit: 10 students. Please bring a journal and your favorite writing utensil and be prepared to write in class.

When: Sunday, December 10th, 1- 6pm
Cost: $40 per person

For former students: this class will switch things up a bit! A one-day structure calls for a new format. I know you're up to the challenge!

Where:
The back room of the Mothership Coworking Space
401 W Geer St, Durham, NC 27701

Students may park in the Motorco/Mothership lot and should enter through the shop. Lunch will not be served but I will include light snacks.

Enrollment ends: Monday December 4th.
