January Prompt Class at Politics & Prose

Join me! This class is always fun and productive...beginners welcome, as are more experienced writers.

Tuesday, January 29, 2019
6:30-9 p.m.
Right Brain Writing: People
Politics & Prose Bookstore
5015 Connecticut Avenue NW
Washington, DC

Explore your creative side in this session, one of a series of stand-alone classes with prompts designed to get your subconscious flowing. Through guided exercises, we’ll focus on writing about the people in our lives—the people we know, the people we think we know, and, of course, the deepest mystery of all: ourselves. No writing experience necessary! This is a great class for beginners and also for those fiction writers and/or memoirists with more experience who might be stuck in their current projects and are looking for a jolt of inspiration. Our goal is to have fun in a supportive, nurturing environment and to go home with several promising pieces to work on further.  Please bring lots of paper and pen/pencil or a fully charged computer.
