05:30 PM - 08:30 PM
To encourage attendance at both workshops, sign up for for the June 10 and 24 workshops below. Attendance on the first night of this series is essential; the material will not be repeated on the second night.
As part of summer reading, the library is pleased that Cindy La Ferle will be back on Mondays, June 10 and June 24, 5:30 - 8:30 PM, to teach a two-part writing class as part of Adult Summer Reading 2013.
These days, everyone from your boss to your next-door neighbor is blogging or working on a memoir. Whether you want to craft the story of your own life, a blog post, or a personal essay that an editor will pay to publish, you’ll need to master the basic rules of good writing. This workshop will help you discover the following:
- The difference between “confessional” rambling and elegant personal prose.
- What makes your story different or original – and what to do if it’s not.
- How the practice of writing can change your life.
Workshop leader La Ferle is a nationally published columnist and author of an award-winning story collection, Writing Home. She writes a bimonthly column on midlife issues for Michigan Prime magazine, and her personal blog is carried by the Oakland Press and Daily Tribune.
Please bring a notebook and your favorite pen (or a laptop) to class. The workshops are free, but registration is required. For more information, call the adult reference desk at 248-246-3727. Sponsored by the Friends of the Royal Oak Public Library.
