Looking to pick up new writing skills or hone your current writing abilities? Through the inspiration of the Garden, you will become engaged in creating prose and poetry that you never knew you could create. Learn how to let your senses and talents paint word pictures that have been waiting to be written only through your creativity.

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.

Instructors
