In this class, participants will be encouraged to sort out what they want to write about, to help them determine where to start. They will be encouraged to write about the smallest and largest details of life: to see the beauty of a spider, the push and pull of a first day of school, the satisfaction of a job well done. The emphasis will be on selecting which of these details to write about, seeing the possibilities. This class will not focus as much on the writing as on the subjects about which much can be written. If you have ever wanted to write essays but didn’t know where to start, this is the class for you. If you have ever suffered from writer’s block and want to unblock it, this class is for you.
Class meets Tuesday, September 5, and Thursday, September 7, 1:30 – 3 pm. This is a special free offering from Write On but registration is required.
