WRITERS' LAUNCH II
Instructor: Julie Gilbert
The Writers' Academy At The Kravis Center
The class is an additional eight-week session of the Writers' Launch (January 3-February 21). Writers' Launch is just that – a pad from which to raise written expression. Within every human being there are unspoken thoughts and memories: there is buried treasure. This course is designed to alchemize the unexpressed bounty into a discipline of form, content, technique and style, which will result in a story. The focus and goal is toward the fictional short story. Writers' Launch will be held on March 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29, and April 5, 12 & 19.
March 1-2 – 7:30 p.m. (Thursday & Friday)
PEPPINO D'AGOSTINO, GUITAR
Special Guest Carlos Reyes – Harp & Violin
