Is there a writing project brewing in your imagination?
The Museum at Campbell River once again offers its popular five-part Workshop for Aspiring Writers, starting Oct.16. It’s designed as a kick start for a range of genres, from memoir and family history to fiction.
Instructor Jeanette Taylor, author of River City, a History of Campbell River & the Discovery Islands, will guide new and intermediate writers through planning strategies, writing craft, story structure, self-motivation, revisions and publication.
“Participants sample a variety of techniques in every class, applying what they learn to their own project,” says Taylor. “The idea is to start and complete a short piece – an essay, short story or a chapter – during this class. Writing begins in the first session,” adds Taylor, “so come with a pretty well developed story idea or subject in mind.”
The workshop fee of $150 includes a comprehensive binder of readings, and there will be opportunities for peer and instructor feedback.
The workshop only has 12 spaces available, so register sooner rather than later by calling 250-287-3103.
