How do you develop poems and short prose—personal essay, memoir, or story—from an idea or even a “blank” mind? Discover how to make this happen. Learn how creativity works and how to capture your imagination in writing. This workshop will answer the questions: How does “good” writing get written? How do I generate ideas? How can I overcome writer’s block? How can I find my own voice? We will learn how to create a supportive atmosphere for critiquing each other’s work by writing and sharing our writing each workshop evening. Expect to complete several pieces by the end of eight weeks. On November 17 at 7:30 p.m. we will attend the VoiceCatcher reading at Powell’s Books (Burnside) in Portland. Come and help inspire Vancouver writers.

Mary McIntosh, Ph.D., is a freelance writer and editor who has taught creative writing workshops and college classes in writing for over 25 years. She has published poems in literary magazines and is a contributor to VoiceCatcher 3, an anthology of Portland Women Writers.
