Let’s Get You Writing *NEW*

Get your creative juices flowing with this workshop that includes lecture, brainstorming, and writing exercises. Free your imagination as you sharpen your writing and communication skills. Using prompts, create three short pieces - the first using dialogue, the second focusing on characterization and the third developing plot and resolution. These exercises will provide a great jump-start for a longer piece.

Izolda Trakhtenberg, a dynamic and accomplished instructor, will guide you to produce your best work and embark on a writer’s life.

Tuition: $69** (includes $44 in fees*)
