Creative Nonfiction classes planned by WIM

Pine Hill — Writers in the Mountains (WIM) has announced its spring Creative Nonfiction workshop with Anique Taylor, February 1 to May 3. The class will be held Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pine Hill Community Center, Main Street, Pine Hill.

In a college-like semester packed with excitement and growth, this extended class will offer writers possibilities for deepening their craft, group support and continuing work on long projects. With a preference for exploring memory, risk, danger, dreams, different versions of reality and deeper connection with self, the class will explore personal essay, memoir, journal work, writing for ourselves and for publication.

Class exercises will familiarize students with techniques of poetry, fiction, playwriting to provide tools to hone their work.

The topics

Classes will include freewriting, exploratory exercises, supportive feedback on students’ writing, along with discussions on short works by famous authors (nonfiction essays, stories and memoir, along with essays on craft and the writer’s life). Between classes, reading and work suggestions will be offered for those interested.

All welcome, students with long projects, short projects or those who want to take it week by week. All levels welcome.
