Turning your Life into Story
… and into publication
Fridays from September 18 to December 4
Facilitated by Susan Lynn Reynolds
This six week course will encourage participants to find the germs of story in their own experiences (or those of their family and friends) and transform them into fictional short stories. Through studying existing short stories and learning writer’s craft techniques, authors will experiment with their own tales. By the end of the course writers will produce one or two polished stories and, if they choose, “put a stamp on it” – i.e., identify a contest or journal they think is an ideal market for their story and send the piece off.
This course will be offered again, in the six weeks after this course is over, for those who would like to continue on. Those who were not able to take the first course can join at that point and begin developing their own stories.

Second session: November 1 to December 4, 2015. Friday mornings: 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. $180 for 6 weeks
