Have you thought about writing a memoir, journal, travel log or blog, but are daunted by the process? Local author Greg Zeigler will help you get started! Your story will grow session by session, until you have a polished manuscript at the end-of-workshop party. While working on your piece, you'll be part of a community of writers, helping others in the class edit and improve their work. Skills learned will include: story ideas, research, outlining, editing, finding your voice, conflict and conflict resolution, and rewriting.

Enhance your love of living through writing!
