ATLANTA -- Following its
popular memoir workshop with Terri Ryburn in November, the Atlanta Public
Library continues its adult creative writing program in January with "Yes,
You Can Write!" With the goal of keeping its writers group together and
adding new people, the library will offer five Thursday evening sessions at
the library on a variety of topics that will appeal to fiction and
nonfiction interests alike.
The workshop is designed for people
who enjoy writing already, those who have always wanted to try their
hand at it or even people who 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.
"Yes, You Can Write!" is recommended
for age 18 and older. Sessions take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the
library. Scheduled topics are "Finding Your Inspiration," Jan. 17;
"Setting the Landscape," Feb. 21; "All About Character," March 21;
"The Tricks of Dialogue," April 25; and "The Basics of Plot," May 9.
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
