Creative Writing Class - 10/14/12

Oct 11, 2012 12:00 PM

Aimee Bender has taught creative writing for 20 years to ages 4-77 and all in between.  At readings, there's usually someone who asks if there's any kind of public class happening, and she says no, because she can't fit it into her schedule.  This'll be a rare change-- a four hour creative writing class: exercises and talk, a little workshop, a bit of reading, and lots of stirring up of the woolly imaginative brain.  All levels welcome.  Class will be held on October 14, 2012 from 10am-3pm with an hour break for lunch.
