We each have a story to tell; here’s a chance to tell yours. This 10-part workshop for writers of all experience levels (including none!) will help you get your tales from the head to the page with prompts, exercises, and sharing. The class will also cover topics including blogging and publishing.

Mondays, starting September 9, 2019, 10:00 a.m. – noon:
September 9, 16, 23, 30

A public reading of original work from the workshop series will take place in Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art Lounge on Saturday, November 16, at 2:00 p.m.
