Did you tell yourself this is the year to publish some of your family stories?
Whether your goal is a family-only writing project or maybe something a lot bigger, begin writing and sharing with other writers in this follow-up to the February class. This course will enable you to start (or continue) the process with a goal of completing a project in the fall. Covers Beginning the Stories, Finding Structure in Your Many Tales, Publication, and What to Do after Publishing the Stories, as well as a round-robin sharing of work with feedback. Attendance at Writing Family Stories 1 is not required.
This interactive writers workshop will be held as an in-person class at the Pat Conroy Literary Center (601 Bladen St., Beaufort), with an option for remote participants to join via Zoom.
Tuesday, June 27, 5:00-7:00 p.m. Limited to 15 participants.
