Creative Writing Workshops Spring-Summer Schedule

Writers Read at Fallbrook Library
Offers Two New Creative Writing Workshops

 

Writing for Our Lives – April-May 2017

Women’s voices are censored—often silenced—in a multitude of spirit-crushing ways. This creative writing workshop encourages women of all ages to explore our voices, our experiences, our spirits, and to write our stories, loud and clear.

Creative writing is a process of self-exploration and preservation. It’s healing and enlightening, and it’s also great fun, particularly when shared with other women.

This four-week workshop is for all women, seasoned writers and new, age 16 and older. Through a series of writing and sensory exercises, we’ll explore the ways of expressing the things we’ve always wanted to say. Whether our words are sorrowful or funny or frightening, erotic or peaceful or agitating, we are writing for our lives.
