Writing Programs throughout October

Kick off a creative fall with writing programs throughout the month of October. Whether you’re getting ready for National Novel Writing Month in November, have been talking about writing your memoir for ages, or just want to express yourself in a new way, we have a free writing class for you. Explore the following options.

Teen Authors

Creative Writing Workshop for Teens: Have you ever been interested in becoming an author? Maybe you are having writers block? Join us Thursdays in October for a teen writing workshop series with local author Trakena Prevost! Learn how to develop your characters or maybe you would like to learn how to write a fight scene. Bring all your questions! Upcoming meetings on October 12 and 19.

Night Owls: Creative Writing Club for Teens: Are you a night owl? Do you do your best writing in the evening? Join other night owls every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month as we stretch our imaginations with exercises to help each other through the creative writing process. Upcoming meetings on October 12 and 26.

Classes for Adults

Memoir Writing Workshop: Join other aspiring writers for an inspiring mini memoir writing workshop! We’ll start by examining some tried and true memoir writing advice, such as narrowing your focus, putting your readers in your shoes, borrowing techniques from fiction writing, creating an emotional journey, and more. Then we’ll spend some time writing from memory prompts. Those who are interested can share excerpts with the group for feedback. This workshop meets on October 18.

Novel Writer’s Workshop: Every story has a beginning, middle and an end. But how do you get from the very first sentence to the climax, and how do you bundle your plot points into a neat package? Join author Krystal N. Craiker as she gives you all the tools you’ll need to plot your own novel in preparation of the upcoming National Novel Writing Month. This workshop meets on October 21.

NaNoWriMo

Once you’ve gotten ideas, learned techniques, and maybe even plotted out your novel, join us in November for National Novel Writing Month. We’re hosting open writing times every week! NaNoWriMo Creative Space meets November 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29.
