Description:  
Writing Workshop – I’m Talking to You
 
We all talk to a “you” when we write a letter or e-mail.  But can we do it in other writing?   Come join us as we look at short published pieces in which the author directly addresses the reader – just the way we all do, in a letter -- and discover how using this technique can be applied to the other stories we want to tell, from poetry to fiction to creative non-fiction.
 
You will not be required to write or share your own work, but you will have the option to do so in a warm supportive atmosphere at the end of the meeting.
 
No special knowledge or experience is necessary.  All who enjoy reading and writing are welcome to attend.
 
Registration required:  Stop by the Reference Desk or call 508.210.5569.
