Level 1 (Beginner)
Mondays, 7 to 9 p.m.
June 11 to July 16 (No Class July 2)
with Jennifer Gaites

If you have thought about writing a memoir but have no idea where to begin, this is the class for you. In a safe, supportive environment, we invite you into the storytelling mindset with guided prompts while also introducing the fundamentals of memoir writing—characterization, voice, setting, emotional resonance—using mentor texts as inspiration. Each week, we come together to discover the stories we were meant to tell and the motivation needed to start and continue our own writing practice. This is a beginner-level, prompt-based course.


Poetry & Prose

All Levels
Tuesdays, 7 to 9 p.m.
June 12 to June 26
with Laura McCullough

Whether you love poetry or prose, secretly write it, or just want to understand it better and explore your creativity, this is the place for you. We learn the language of “craft” and explore the relationship between inspiration and controlling effects such as image, metaphor, sonics, musicality, rhetorical strategies, lineation, and more to create poetry and prose that helps connect our inner voices to our readers. Each week we read a few contemporary pieces and discuss how they operate, have a craft talk, and work on generating new original writing of our own with inspiring prompts and guidance. Beginners to veteran writers are welcome, and sessions are geared to the interest and experience level of participants.


Emerging Writers

Level 2 (Intermediate)
Wednesdays, 7 to 9 p.m.
June 13 to July 18 (No Class July 4)
with Allison Tevald

Discover the community that develops when writers come together. We analyze mentor texts to discuss what makes a story compelling and write during each session with a focus on some aspect of craft. Each week, we write, read, and workshop our writing as a team to help find the right direction, voice, and style to get you to the next level. Whether you’d like to try fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or hybrid, we inspire your creativity and provide the time you deserve to dedicate to your craft.
