A Writer's Workshop


with Kristen Leonard

Calendar Mar 6, 2024 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Do you want to improve your writing skills for work? Write a poem to your beloved or finish that family memoir? Or maybe you’ve considered writing a script? If so, come join us in this 6-week writer’s workshop where we will explore a variety of writing genres. 

This fall, our focus will be on STORIES - both real and imagined. We will analyze the elements of effective storytelling, including (but not limited to) plot, character, scene, point of view, voice, and tone. Participants will write and/or revise their stories of choice and together we will examine successful writing strategies and tricks of the trade. And most of all, we will discover that writing can be fun!  This is a live online class using ZOOM.  

Kristin holds a Masters in English (Literature), as well as an M. F. A. in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine.  She is the 2019 recipient of the Maine Literary Award for Drama and Lit Fest’s 2019 Dramatic Writing Fellow for Emerging Writers. Her critical and creative work have appeared in The Explicator, Ekphrastic Review, The Atlantic, New Hampshire Public Radio, and more.
