It’s back!  Thanks to the Saint Croix Falls Library and WITC I’ll be teaching a six week creative non-fiction class called “The Relevant Personal Story” beginning January 16, 2019.

Creative non-fiction uses the same tools as fiction – character, plot, setting, dialogue – and applies them to stories from our lives. We craft these personal stories in a way that reveals their universal significance and makes them meaningful to others.

The class takes participants through the writing process from beginning concept to finished piece over the course of six weeks.  Participants take away one completed story and the format for continuing on their own afterwards.

Imagination and inspiration are amplified when we work together, exchange ideas, and encourage each other.  Please join me!

The class runs Wednesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. January 16th through February 20th.  As an added bonus, the class will look at the writing of Wisconsin author Michael Perry who’ll be at the library January 30th in a public reading.

Registration through WITC is required in advance at
