TEEN WRITING WORKSHOP: Writing can be an awesome form of self expression. This two-session writing workshop for teens will help unleash that creativity, even if you are a beginner with little experience. The classes will explore various forms of fiction and non-fiction and will include some writing in and out of class. If you are shy about expressing yourself, bring a friend.

Classes begin at 11 a.m. - Monday, August 19 and 26 at 11 AM  Online registration is required https://delawarelibraries.libcal.com/event/5460477. A class limit of 15 teens.


ADULT MEMOIR WRITING WORKSHOPOf all the forms of non-fiction, memoir writing is the most personal. And, it also has become one of the most popular forms of written expression. Indeed, the heightened interest in memoirs is tied to an array of motivations, including a desire to leave a personal legacy for friends and family. But writing a good memoir can be a challenge. To guide that journey, this three-session workshop will help you master - and practice - the basics of writing a good, readable memoir. No prior writing experience is needed.

Wednesdays at 10:30 - July 10, 17, 24. at 10:30 AM  Online registration is required https://delawarelibraries.libcal.com/event/5449257.  A class limit of 15 writers.

The instructor for the writing workshops will be Georgetown resident, Rae Tyson. He has been a professional writer for over 30 years. Tyson, a former public school educator, is currently teaching writing classes at the University of Delaware.
