Books & Writing

The Writers Workshop

Have you ever written down your dreams? Would you like to turn your experiences into stories or poetry? Do you love to write? The Writers Workshop is for any Club member interested in pursuing the art of writing (in English). Assigned topics allow the writer to tell a story while sharpening technical skills, style and voice in fiction, non-fiction and poetry. One Friday morning a month.
