I am pleased and excited to announce that I will be teaching a series of writing classes throughout the summer. On Thursdays. Come to class for fun, inspiration and friendship. If you decide to do some extra work and meet certain requirements, you can earn a Basic Writing Certificate. There will also be opportunities to practice reading or speaking in front of an audience.
All the classes will meet on Thursdays from May 16 through October 24. The series is sponsored by the Latah Recovery Community Center (where the classes will be held) and are free and open to anyone. The LRCC is a nonprofit organization serving people and families affected by behavioral and mental health issues since 2015.
If you have been curious about the LRCC or have thought about becoming involved in any of its programs, taking a class is a good introduction. Descriptions of the writing classes are below. Any questions?
Write For You
Thursdays, beginning May 16. 5:00 – 6:30 PM. 531 S. Main St. Moscow, ID.
- In-class writing exercises that help you to be grounded and creative.
- We’ll cover topics like spelling and grammar, storytelling, poetry, memes, comics and graphic novels.
- There will be homework assignments for anyone who wants to do them.
First and fourth Thursdays, May 23 – October 24. 7:00 – 8:00 PM. 531 S. Main St. Moscow, ID.
- A class where you learn how to get up and talk in front of an audience. People who are terrified to get up and talk in front of an audience are especially welcome!
- There might be homework.
- This is a closed group. You must get permission to attend.
- Get permission by coming to a Write For You class.
Basic Writing Certificate
If you want to work on a writing project outside of class, consider earning a Basic Writing Certificate. Here are the requirements:
- Attend at least 12 Write For You classes and do the homework.
- Attend at least 4 Stand Up! Classes and do the homework.
- Do a project of your choice. (The homework will help you with this.)
- Organize all of your writing in a portfolio.
- Share at least one thing you have written with the wider world.
- Write a report that explains what you did and what you learned.
Meeting these requirements is actually a lot of work. You will learn a lot. That’s why you get the certificate. You can put it on your resume.
