Newscope: SCCC to offer new creative writing course

Friday, September 28, 2012

For those ready to take the craft of writing more seriously and want a course with other writers who will give supportive, constructive feedback, Saline County Career Center is offering "Getting Started ... Again" -- a Level I or II writing course.

This is a great course for short fiction and nonfiction writers and for anyone interested in writing a memoir, according to the teacher, Marshall Democrat-News staff writer Sarah Reed.

Participants will receive short story handouts and discuss how authors used the basics to craft their stories while applying those skills in class.

Participants will write in class, share copies of their work, provide each other with constructive remarks and turn in revisions. The class will also discuss submitting work for publication. This is a great course for those who've started a story and are ready to pick it back up, as well as beginners looking for new ideas. Writers will need to bring paper and pen to class. The course is $39 for three sessions, held from 6-8 p.m. for three Wednesdays, Oct. 3, 10 and 17.

Sounds like a great opportunity. Who's teaching it?
