Join the Atlanta Public Library's writing circle

Send a link to a friend

[February 11, 2013]  ATLANTA -- There's still time to sign up for the Atlanta Public Library's adult writing circle, "Yes, You Can Write!" The workshops are designed for people who enjoy writing already, who have always wanted to try their hand at it, or even think they can't write at all! Come and be surprised by what you can do. Participants will explore a wide range of writing techniques, share their stories with others, and enjoy the support of their fellow writers.

Whether you want to write fiction, memoirs, nonfiction, poetry or anything else, this group is a friendly, supportive circle of friends who enjoy sharing their ideas and stories with others. Sessions are light-hearted, fun and participatory. While people may come to as many sessions as they like, the library recommends signing up for all five sessions in order to help create a nurturing and safe environment in which people feel free to experiment and share their work.

Yes, You Can Write! is recommended for people age 18 and older. Sessions are from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Atlanta Library. Topics in this series are "Finding Your Inspiration," Feb. 21; "Setting the Landscape," March 21; "All About Character," April 11; "The Tricks of Dialogue" April 25; and "The Basics of Plot," May 9.
