Why Write?


Thursday • 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. • Shapiro CD

September 12

We write to be fully alive. Writing draws us into the moment. We see the blades of grass, hear the miniscule chirp of the morning cricket, watch the shade travel from one edge of the yard to the other, seemingly for the first time. Writing helps us make art and sense out of our every day, ordinary moments. Every story matters to the person living it: write to bring meaning to your world. We will explore and provide resources to experience writing, whether you are putting the pen down on paper for the first time, wishing to improve your writings or ready to publish your manuscript.
