InstructorFALL 2020Writing Classes
All classes are held at the Del Valle Education Center, 100 Building
What words or message might be bubbling up inside you? What would you like to bring to voice? Whether or not your writing path is clear, you are invited to join a class community in which you can develop ideas, skills, and creativity. Each week we begin with an in-class writing exercise. Then we present the work we have done at home – whimsical or serious prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, memoir, essay – all are welcome. Finally, we follow a safe critique process that offers supportive feedback and encourages us to HAVE FUN WRITING!

You’ve dreamed of putting your life down in words, but now you ask yourself; Is my life really that interesting? Do I have enough material and memories to fill a whole book? Perhaps writing your memoir seems too overwhelming to even begin! Remember that your life story is unique, vivid, and heart-warming. Writing and sending it out into the world (or just to your grandchildren) makes meaning of your life and validates it. Memoir writing is many-layered and complex. This class breaks it down into-easy-to-follow steps reinforced by examples, prompts, and exercises, giving you a firm foundation on which to build your memoir.
