Are great writers born that way? Or do their experiences make them great writers? To hear Stephen King tell it, you’re born with a set of skills, and your experiences help determine the product. In our next class, based on Stephen King’s On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, we’ll journey back to your earliest memories and figure out why that old train yard keeps showing up as the backdrop in your fiction (oops, sorry, that’s Stephen King!)
If you’ve been afraid to take a writing course because you think it will be a bunch of stodgy folks who sit around in the quiet with their pens scribbling furiously, then this class will have you pleasantly surprised! Beth Hermes facilitates a class that is creative, inspiring and downright FUN. Copy of book recommended: On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft (Stephen King).
Special notice: This class will be delivered online. You will need access to a computer with an internet connection that remains stable for the duration of the class. Though a chat feature is available, a microphone is preferred. For most productive audio/video participation, a webcam and/or headset are encouraged. Virtual classes may be recorded.
