Karin Fuller, Sunday Gazette-Mail columnist, and her husband, Geoff, an experienced writing teacher and award-winning author and editor, are teaming up to present Short Takes: Writing from Life. Students will learn how to turn their personal experiences into stories that move, amuse, and inspire their readers.
Through in-class exercises and homework assignments, participants will recognize how to choose which experiences to write about, how to rekindle memories, and how to craft short narratives that can be used as models or to build a foundation for longer work.
The material will be covered in three, two-hour classes, and Karin and Geoff are open to holding a fourth class (at no charge) for critiquing, questions on markets, or how to publish your work.
