Kick off the New Year creatively with a two-week writing workshop led by local author Nicole Cannella. Nicole will lead the class through a collage creation of attendees own personal vision board while assisting them in the process of writing a first person narrative essay on their 1-5 year goals.
This class will create an inviting and inspiring space to explore what each student dreams looks like visually and how they sound in essay form. By class' end, each student will have a vision board to hang as a reminder of one's goals as well as an accompanying essay to refer back to for self-inspiration and focused fortitude.
Classes will be held on Thursday, January 17th and 24th from 7:00-9:00pm. No formal writing experience is required. Students should bring a poster board and glue stick.
