Join us for a free, fun, engaging and different look into writing on Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. in the JCC. In this class, we will not focus on structure, form or rules, but on the freedom of writing. It is the goal of this class to open the mind to its full creative potential by allowing participants to write what they want, how they want to write it. The sessions will be student lead; we will engage in topics and subjects that are of interest to the students. The atmosphere is casual and jovial. This class is designed for all those 18 and up who wish to try their hand at creative writing.
Let us enjoy the journey together and keep up the good words!
