Have you ever wanted to write your memoir, but didn’t know where to start? Do you feel like it’s an overwhelming task even if you have given it a try? Come join this class to get your memoir jump-started. Besides that, you will learn that you can write a memoir using poems, or a combination of both prose and poems. We will look at how you can frame your memoir around a major life event or a series of happenings in which others can relate. In this series of three class sessions, you can begin to piece together a manuscript that you can seek to publish for the masses, gift to your family, or just write for yourself. We will write from prompts that will “capture your life” and help you get your memories on the page and we’ll share our work, ideas, concerns, questions, and epiphanies. | Cost: $55
10 a.m.
If you are looking for a new or different hobby, consider needlepointing. Today’s needlepointing is not the same as it was during your grandmother’s time. In each class you can create a one-of-a-kind needlepointed piece by selecting your own thread colors. The stitch guide that accompanies his project allows you to even choose the stitches you want to use to complete the project. Class is for the beginner, intermediate, or advanced needlepointer. | Cost: $30, includes holiday-themed project.

You have your manuscript (or even a grouping of poems or a short story) ready to send out, but you’re not sure how to take the plunge into publication. Do you need an agent? How do you find one? Can you send it to more places than one? What if I get rejected…am I a failure? Where do you find places that will accept your manuscript? Do I pay big money to get published or do I get paid for my work? How do I get blurbs for my cover? Is self-publishing an option? We will cover these questions, your questions, and so much more in this two-hour workshop on how you can get published – by a big publishing house, smaller presses, or even online journals for a poem or a short story. You will walk away with a lot of ideas, inspiration, and places to get your manuscript or your shorter works published. | Cost: $35
