Change, Change, Rearrange: A Writing Workshop


This in-person generative writing workshop will be held at 
Northwoods Friends of the Arts Gallery
210 S. River St. in Cook at the NWFA Gallery in the building
 adjoining Dream Weaver Day Spa and Salon.

Tuesday, July 13 1:00 – 4:00pm

presented by Sheila Packa, author of Night Train Red Dust: Poems of the Iron Range.  

What moves you? What has marked you? Come to this half day workshop. During the 3 hour session, we will do guided writing exercises that use personal memories, family history, and even music to create a piece of writing: a memoir, a poem, or a story.  We will play and experiment with writing in order to discover good material.  While the focus is on generating new work, participants will also consider some tips that make a piece of writing more vivid, immediate, and powerful. This workshop is for beginners and more advanced writers. At the end, participants will have time to share their new work if they like.  

Cost: $40.00 members, $55.00 nonmembers. Registration required at the gallery or 218 666-2153 .
