Check Out Spring Classes at the Writer's Center

There is no better bargain than the classes at the Writer’s Center. Dedicated teachers (like me!); a wide array of interesting, reasonably priced classes; an option of internet classes…you can’t go wrong. The new classes for spring are listed here; be sure to move quickly. Plenty of classes sell out; go here for more information.

I’ll be offering one of my favorite one-day classes, designed for beginning writers:

Finding Your Voice: Creating Memorable Fiction and Memoir
A One-Day Workshop

Have you always wanted to write but couldn’t quite find the courage to pick up a pencil? Or perhaps you’re a secret writer, scribbling stories in private notebooks, compulsively filling the pages of your journal? This supportive, hands-on workshop will give you courage to write and direction about how to proceed. Through discussion and writing exercises, participants will learn some basic techniques of fiction/memoir writing. The goal is to leave with several promising pieces to finish at home. Bring a pen and lots of paper! One hour lunch break.

Saturday, May 10, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM in Bethesda

Registration and details here.


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
