(This program continues for multiple sessions)
Tuesdays, July 16 – 23

Led by Enid Powell

Learn how specific types of journal entries and observations can inspire essays, memoirs, and works of fiction. Writing exercises will give participants an opportunity to practice techniques for extending and deepening their initial ideas and entries, thereby maximizing their potential for finished narrative forms. Please bring a personal photograph to the workshop. It may depict a scene, a person or group, or whatever engaged your attention.

Enid Powell has led writing workshops for the past twenty years and has published fiction, creative non-fiction, essays, poetry, and a book of short stories. She holds an M.A. in English with a creative writing specialty from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
