This 8-week writing course will employ a nurturing critique group format, to help attendees develop stories inspired by their own experiences. The instructor’s picture book I Am a Thief! was inspired by her theft of a magnet when she was a young child. It is a funny, heartfelt story about facing down shame to make right your mistakes. What past experiences can you draw from to make your fiction resonate with readers young and old? Open to writers of all levels.
