Have you ever had a secret place? A hideout? A hut? A place that was your own special place? For many writers, a personal journal provides that same sense of privacy and freedom. It’s a place to be alone with your thoughts, to let your imagination run wild, and to explore the richness of your inner world. In this class, you will focus on writing as a means of self-discovery. Expect to keep a journal, which will be shared only voluntarily and to do a series of fun, imaginative activities combining art (working with clay, drawing, etc.) and writing. Join us!!
Both beginning and more experienced writers are welcome. Ages 12-18 are welcome.
