I’ll be teaching two writing classes in St. Louis Park, MN in the coming weeks.

Story and Memory is first at the St. Louis Park Library and the Lenox Community Center.

Here’s the workshop description:

Story and Memory: Are you full of interesting memories, but aren’t sure how to spin them into yarns? In this two-part workshop, we’ll work with our own memories and turn anecdotes into tales. Then we’ll ask, “Now what?” From diaries to a simple blog, it has never been easier (or cheaper!) to share your stories.

I’m also teaching a workshop on Time & Place on Saturday, November 2, from 1-4:00, also at the St. Louis Park Library. Call 612-543-6125 to register.

Here’s the workshop description:

Bringing Time & Place to Life in Your Fiction: Whether you are writing your memoir, a gritty mystery, an intergalactic fantasy or a literary masterpiece, you need to put your reader in the action with your characters, using details specific to the world you’re creating. We’ll discuss the writer’s process, look at examples, practice writing and share work. Writers of all abilities are welcome.

I’m filling these classes with great writing exercises, memory jump-starters, and everyone will have the opportunity to share what they write in class.

For example, how do you create that vital image that sticks with a reader? We’ll cover that in Time & Place!
