New class at the Creative Alliance!
Stay out of the Baltimore heat on Thursday nights—by jumping into the frying pan! My fiction class at the Creative Alliance starts in August. Hope to see you there!
Let's Get It Started in Here!
With apologies to the Black Eyed Peas, sometimes all you need is to get the rhythm going. Are you itching to start that novel, or bogged down in the memoir marsh? Jen Michalski—author, editor, and host of the wildly popular 510 Reading series—leads newbies and nearly new writers through the early stages of the creative process. Perfect for any prose writers working on a novel, creative nonfiction, or short stories. August 2-23rd, 7-9pm.
