Instructor Susan Ruckdeschel, author and national educator, will lead Creative Writing Workshops using her peer coaching technique at Butterfield Library.
Ruckdeschel will teach students to write from the inside, as well as review and edit their work. In the process, they will learn to set goals, identify their own struggles or writing issues, listen intentionally and give feedback to each other using specific communications technique.
Whatever genre suits your passion will be honored: creative stories, poems, memoir, feature articles, and even editorials / journalistic writing.
