Are you a writer or wanna be writer searching for creative inspiration? Look no farther, it’s coming to Sylvan Oaks Library - “Writing with Gusto in the Odd-Numbered Year.” Ingrid Lundquist of The Book-In-Hand Roadshow will present a series of writing workshops for adults aged 55+ years on Tuesday mornings (February 21 & 28, March 7) from 10am-12noon.
You’ll learn how to capitalize on what you already know, overcome the anxiety of thinking you don’t have enough to say, and tap into your own endless source of creativity. After three mornings of discovery, you’ll walk away with effective (and portable) tools that can be applied to any writing style.Registration and attendance at all three sessions is required. A Creative Aging Program.
