Join Diane Kane and Clare Panni for this 6-week workshop in which each participant will craft a story.

This workshop is for beginning and intermediate writers who want to learn more about the building blocks of writing and to share their own knowledge and ideas with other writers.

These classes are for anyone who loves to write, fiction or non-fiction, whether you hope to publish or write for your own enjoyment.

We'll explore a different topic each week - 

Week 1:  Titles and First Lines:  Reeling in the Reader

Week 2:  Who Are You?  Developing Character

Week 3:  Where Are You Taking Me?  Developing Plot

Week 4:  Make Me Laugh:  Using Humor in All Genres

Week 5:  Never Leave Them Hanging:  Wrapping Up Your Story

Week 6:  Tell Me a Story:  Read Your Story or Listen to Others

Limited to 15 participants.

Adults and teens, ages 16 and up.

Please commit to all six sessions, February 25 - April 7.  (No session March 24.)
