Creative Writing


Creative Writing CW01 Ages 18+
Join us up the street at the historic Sewickley Library where both beginners and experienced writers will find instruction and support as they learn to collect their thoughts and construct their own short stories and essays. Students will learn editing techniques, character development, setting, plot, narrative voice, and exposition, while participating in regular, and supportive critiques. Join instructor Beverlee Blair and a veteran cast of returning students currently working on essays, a memoir, a short story collection, a novel, and a vague but persistent creative notion. Bring a spark, a kernel, the seed of an idea. Bring your laptop, favorite pen or pencil... and come to write! This class is located at the Sewickley Library: 500 Thorn St, Sewickley, PA 15143
