Join Joni B. Cole, author and founder of the Writer’s Center of White River Junction, for this fun and meaningful workshop. You will be invited to write from a “prompt” as a means of mining material from your own life story. You also will have the opportunity to read aloud what you wrote and, equally powerful, listen as others share their voices, memories, and perspectives. Absolutely no writing experience is required, but aspiring authors in the workshop will pick up narrative techniques and tips on how to effectively craft memoirs or personal essays. Please bring a ready pen (or laptop) and an open mind.
This workshop will be lead by Joni B. Cole, author of the recent release Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, and Be Happier, listed as one of the “Best Books for Writers” by Poets & Writers magazine. Joni teaches creative writing in a diversity of academic and social service programs, and is the founder of the Writer’s Center of White River Junction, Vermont.
