UPCOMING CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

FIRST SATURDAYS BEGINNING IN MARCH 2019

WRITING WORKSHOPS: A Novel Idea – Critique 101

Authors don’t get a second chance to explain to readers the intention behind their words. Express what you really mean to say, and show, by sharing your work with readers who will comment on and critique plot, characterization, dialogue, setting, and any inconsistencies with grammar, point of view, or voice. If you’re writing the first draft or polishing for publication, then this class is for you!

Led by published author and editor Catherine Jordan, learn how to critique others, how to receive a critique, and how to see your piece with an editor’s eye.

While the full course is underway, you may still sign up for individual sessions for $35, depending on space.

Learn more workshop details here.

Mindful Ikebana Workshop

Ikebana is a centuries-old art form that calms the spirit, focuses the mind, and trains the eye to find beauty in the natural world. Students will be introduced to mindfulness via several fun activities. Together we will slow down to practice bringing our consciousness into the moment and engage our senses to discover beauty in the everyday objects all around us (often unexpected places). We will then arrange our discoveries to create beautiful displays to take home in a vessel that can be used again and again. All necessary supplies will be provided.
