*Right Brain Writing*
/Donna Prinzmetal/

You don't have to be a professional writer to produce powerful and 
imaginative creative work. Through a series of enjoyable, illuminating 
exercises, right brain energy is channeled into the making of creative 
vignettes, word portraits, poetry, and short stories. The right brain's 
connection to sensation is also explored as you learn to make your 
writing come alive through image, metaphor, voice, and surprising 
language. Dreams, music, painting, and poetry are used to provide 
inspiration. Experienced poets and prose writers as well as those who 
have never written before are welcomed.

*Writing & Reading Poetry*
/David Abel/

In this workshop, we'll look at how poetry works, as writers and as 
readers. We'll write in response to exercises, and in response to what 
we read; we'll read closely one another's work, and the work of other 
poets both familiar and not. The challenge of reading poetry pays off in 
two ways: empathy for the situation of our readers, and the discovery of 
new possibilities. Open to anyone (beginner or veteran) who writes 
poetry and wants to deepen their understanding of the art.

*Creative Writing for Families*
/Amy Minato/

Want to learn something new about your kids or parents? Every member of 
a family sees their shared experiences differently. Discover each other 
through a new lens while polishing writing skills in a supportive, 
informal atmosphere and learn how to bring writing into your home. In 
this class you might write a collaborative story about a favorite event, 
discover journaling together or on your own, make an activities 
calendar, invent new names and titles for family members, or compose a 
poem describing what makes your family unique.

310681  Saturday, January 30  10:00 am - 12:00 pm  [1 class]
