Where: Public Lands Information Center

Sign Up for Monday “Word Play” Series
Self-expression feels so good! Spirited activities, strong examples and the gentlest feedback allow you to experiment with words and emotions, and bring you to a place of surprise. Let me draw you into the genres of poetry, fiction and memoir. Each class helps you find exciting beginnings from an empty page. The “Word Play” series requires no experience, but is also worthwhile for seasoned writers.
When my upcoming Tuesday night series filled and over-filled, I decided to open up a new section on Monday evenings. The class starts in about a week, and is already more than half-full. Register by Wednesday, August 17, if you want to be part of it.
