Virtual Writing Workshop – “Writing Your (Summer) Memories”


Writing Your (Summer) Memories
Virtual classes on Wednesday evenings: June 22, July 13 and August 3
Instructor: Maria Giura
No experience necessary, just a notebook, pen and sense of curiosity and fun!

Wednesdays, June 22 and July 13, 7 to 8:45 pm. Summer is the warmest season of the year, but the word also means a strong beam or capstone that holds something up or together. At these workshops, you will have the opportunity to reflect on and write your memories of the season or of those people and things that have supported you throughout the years.

Wednesday, August 3: 7 to 9 pm: This Revision Workshop is limited to six participants who have attended at least one CB Writing Workshop and have one or two pages of writing (double spaced) that they’d like constructive feedback on. The instructor’s and group’s feedback will help each participant move forward with their writing. After you register, you will be given an email address to send your two pages to the instructor by July 29.

Register for one, two, or all three workshops:
Part 1: Wednesday, June 22
Part 2: Wednesday, July 13
Part 3: Wednesday, Aug. 3

What Participants Have to Say:  

  • “The [short] readings were spot-on, serving as entry ways into lively discussions but also inspiring our own original writing. Brava!”
  • “I just loved the opportunity to read, write, and, if I wanted to, share. These workshops brought back memories that were tucked into the recess of my mind and deepened my interest in reflecting and writing about my culture.”
  • “I’ll take these workshops again and again. So lovely to meet so many nice, new people.  Excellent, skilled, and inspiring instructor.”
