Write Your Story Writing Workshop
Featuring national best-selling author and playwright Denise Michelle Harris, Write Your Story is a hands-on workshop combining lecture and writing exercises that will draw on your personal experiences.
You can render the story as fiction or nonfiction and benefit from the help of Ms. Harris, whose best-selling novel Sweet Bye-Bye was featured in Essence magazine as well as heard on CBS Radio. Workshop participants can complete the exercises during class, and time permitting, share excerpts from their writing. Bring your questions and get your creative juices going as you draw from Ms. Harris's background as a successfully published writer with an MFA in Creative Writing.
You will need to bring your journals and come prepared to write!
This is a free event hosted by the Oakland Main Branch Library; space is limited and RSVP a must! Phone 238-3138 to reserve your space today.
