Join instructor Kate Postle to workout those writing muscles by sharing your terrible-awful-no-good-first-drafts with our passionate community of supportive and friendly writers. Together we'll celebrate the magic in your writing and, just like personal trainers, we'll give each other the tips, tricks and gentle pushes which build strong writing muscles. Writers of all genres from poetry to fiction to non-fiction are welcome. FYI: Most students are writing fiction and memoir at this time. Bring one paragraph up to three pages, double spaced in 12 point font. We can share copies of your writing via the Zoom screen share feature. You DO NOT have to bring your writing. You can learn a ton hearing feedback others receive. We will meet you where you are at. Class limit 15 students. Registration closed after capacity reached.
