Join others who spend their days and nights looking after young children, aging parents, and anyone in between as we learn from one another and build community through writing and workshopping true stories. This eight-week, virtual course is open to writers of all levels of experience, from beginners to veterans. 

Workshop dates: October 10, 17, 24; November 7, 14, 21, 28; and December 5, 4:00-6:00 p.m.
