A Winter Writing Workshop with Jeanette Taylor

Nov 12, 2019 | Education | 0 comments

The McLoughlin Gardens Society has invited well-known local writer and historian Jeanette Taylor to give a six-week writing class at the Courtenay Museum. The class begins January 18 and will continue every two weeks until March 28, 2020.

Here are the details:

Saturdays: 1 – 4 p.m.

Six sessions: Jan 18, Feb 1, Feb 15 (long weekend) & 29, Mar 14 & 28

Registration Fee: $305 members, $325.00 non-members

Launch that writing project, either fiction or nonfiction (including memoir and family history), in a hands-on overview of creative writing. Interactive discussion and writing exercises focus on story planning, finding focus, character development, settings, scenes, writing craft, voice, writer’s block, self-motivation, and publication options. Class exercises and homework will advance your in-process writing.

The bi-monthly schedule allows time for homework, as you polish a finale extract for instructor and peer critiques. You will receive a comprehensive binder of handouts to guide continuing work. An e-mail address is required, to share writing.

Registration information: Register directly through our Eventbrite listing: Creative Writing Primer.
