Program Description

Event Details

It’s the smell of Play-Doh for some of us. For others, the feel of velvet or the sound of Sinatra, Miles Davis or Nirvana. It’s that first bite into baklava, black licorice or beignets. Or maybe all it takes is looking through a pile of old family photos.

In this class, using timed writing exercises and short readings, we’ll honor the senses by opening our writing lives up to what they can offer. Then we’ll write from that opening. Word by word, step by step, scene by scene.

The focus will be on generating new work, giving and receiving feedback, encouraging revision and, if the writer desires, pulling pieces together. The opportunity to work on stand-alone pieces, essays, flash nonfiction and/or micro-memoirs, will also be available.

Registration is required (limited to seven students per session). Patrons can attend as many or as few as they like but must register in advance for each date they wish to attend.

Instructor: Kathy Curto
