What's Included

This class focuses on writing about your own life, the experiences which affect you, and issues that are important to you personally. Draw from the world within and around us, and work on short forms of narrative nonfiction, personal essay, memoir, and flash nonfiction. The emphasis will be on developing strong writing craft skills to transform personal experience into compelling prose that engages and moves discriminating readers. Topics include creating scenes; developing voice and tone; using dialogue; description and details; rhythm and language; and experimenting with structure and form. Each week, students have the option for limited private instructor feedback.

About This Organizer

The Writers Circle offers creative writing workshops for children and adults in South Orange, Maplewood and Summit, NJ. 
 
TWC's weekly workshops for children and adults inspire, support and encourage writers at every stage and age.
For children, The Writers Circle's creative writing workshops tap into children’s natural enthusiasm and free their creative spirit. But instead of using toys or costumes, we use the most powerful creative tool ever created – the written word.


For adults, we offer morning and evening classes, mixed genre and specialized workshops. Ongoing critique, companionship and inspiration move each writer toward their own best work.

 

The Writers Circle also hosts guest speakers, community events, and our fabulous Summer Creative Writing Intensives for teens.
