Writing and Family: Inspirations and Obstacles
Only 8 spots! You must reserve your spot by buying a ticket in advance.

We all grow up with people who influence and shape us, whether its our traditional or nontraditional family. Our identities are tied to these people and reflected in our writing. In this workshop we will focus on the pains & joys of family and everything in between.

In this class we will:
-bring in writing by other writers to study how they write about family
-bring in family photographs or objects to write about and discuss
-Generate writing from prompts focusing how family shapes and influences our worldview
-Edit our work focusing on line and musicality of language

This class is for all levels of writers.
