Summer Vacations are Upon Us!
TRAVEL WRITING WORKSHOP AT THE GUILD
May 23rd and 2nd Date TBD by Participants
7 to 9 p.m.
$35.00 per person
Thursday, May 23 marks the date for the first of a two-session workshop “How I spent my summer vacation”. The two part workshop will be facilitated by Jane Taylor and Alicia Alderman who want to help you “Tell your Story”.
Travel writing typically records the experiences of the traveler, and while social media is a great way to share virtual experiences, travel writing allows one to put experiences into words for keepsake and sharing.
Jane Taylor and Alicia Aldermas both hold Masters Degrees in English and are seasoned instructors.Terry Tomasello, Guild Director states, “This is an exciting new program we are offering and to have Jane and Alicia, both seasoned professionals, share their expertise in travel writing is gratifying.”
The Introductory Session will be held on Thursday, May 23 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Creative Arts Guild Conference Room. Participants are encouraged to bring “memory prompts” to the first session such as a seashell, map or ski boot. The class will spend the summer collecting and recording their experiences and return in August for the final session which will include review, critique and sharing. The final session date will be determined by the class at the first session.
The fee for How I Spent my Summer Vacation is $35 per person both sessions. Participants may bring their journal, laptops or request a journal be provided for a $5 fee. Call the Creative Arts Guild at 706-278-0168 to reserve your spot or visit www.creativeartsguild.org for additional information.
