This four-session class will meet weekly for two hours, Thursdays, September 5, 12, 19 & 26.

The instructor will choose venues throughout the Garden and you will write on a personal electronic device or paper. Each class will include skill review and instruction, as well as personal writing time. The instructor will meet individually with each student during that time to encourage ideas and answer questions.
