We all have a story to tell. Why not tell yours? Whether you want to write your own stories or explore and share your family history, this session will help you start (or jumpstart) your creative writing project. We’ll rely on short published pieces and writing prompts as inspiration to begin new work together in this supportive and interactive writing-intensive workshop. Suitable for all levels.
Sonja Livingston, associate professor in the VCU English department, will guide you through a variety of published pieces and writing prompts that spark inspiration in this supportive and interactive writing-intensive workshop. Suitable for all levels.
The workshop is designed for small groups. Please register early to ensure you can attend.
This event is co-organized by the Humanities Research Center and Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
