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.

Digital Storytelling

Tell stories with photos, text, voice and sound effects. All done on your smartphone or tablet. In this activity we will learn how to combine photos, narration, text and sound to create digital stories you can save or share - perfect for travelogues, documenting family events or even creating simple micro-documentaries. This is an on-going, project-oriented activity centered mainly on writing and photography. You will need a smartphone or tablet (laptops are OK) with a video editing app installed (iMovie, Adobe Rush, WeVideo or others). One Tuesday afternoon a month.
