January 2013: New creative writing class

Writing Grief: a creative writing journey

Tuesdays, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

January 8, 2013 to March 12, 2013

at The Source, 1111 Carlisle Ave. SE, Albuquerque NM

Creative writing teachers Merimee Moffitt and Jennifer Simpson will companion students through 10 weeks of in- and out-of class writing exercises designed to turn the human experience of loss into a story or essay.  We will also critique our in-progress work in class in a workshop format and we’ll use published essays and stories as models and inspiration, looking at specific aspects of craft including: image, characterization, plot, and building scenes with dialog, summary, and reflection.

Designed for writers of all levels.


Tuesdays, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, January 8 to March 12, 2013

at The Source for Creating Sacredness, 1111 Carlisle Ave. SE, Albuquerque, NM

A note–this is not intended to be a group therapy class, but rather a supportive space to WRITE about our grief, and craft those stories.

Cost:  $250 (ask about scholarship availability if money is a deterrent)

pay in full before the first class January 8 and save $100

Each participant will also receive a one-on-one 1/2 hour-long consultation with an instructor regarding their essay or story.

NOTE:  We’ll be donating 10% of our net proceeds to the Children’s Grief Center of Albuquerque.

(We’ll let you know about this class, and other classes in the future, and may send the occasional email sharing information about literature and grief)
