Have you ever thought about becoming a writer? Or wondered how it feels to get published? Do you wish you had more time to write? Need a bit more motivation?

If you want to get your stories down on paper… This course is for you!

This 4-session creative writing course will give you the tools you need to start your journey toward becoming a writer. You will receive plenty of advice, practical tips, and encouragement from an experienced, published writer.

Short writing assignments will be given after each class session. Share your stories with the group, or keep them to yourself—whichever you prefer. All ideas are fine: autobiographical stories, crazy travel adventures, childhood challenges… You name it! Just  bring a pen and notebook and any original ideas you may have.
