Writing Class March 31, 2012: Writing as Target Practice

Posted in Writing Classes tagged at 3:43 pm by Rebecca Hein

Announcing a writing class to be held on Saturday March 31, 2012

Subject: Writing as Target Practice

When a musician plays in tune, everyone can hear the accuracy and beauty of it. Writers can learn to write exactly the story or essay the Muse is calling for, the way musicians learn to play in tune.

Even better than aiming for this target and hitting it is to create the conditions for the target to float so close in front of you that you can’t possibly miss.

Format: Telephone Conference Call

Schedule: Noon-1:30 pm (critiques) and 4:00-5:30 pm (discussion) Eastern Time

Cost: $50.00

Deadline for enrollment: Tuesday March 20, 2012. To enroll, pay $50 via PayPal to woodturnedart@vcn.com on or before March 20 or send a check to Hein Family Enterprises, Inc. 10205 W. Hwy. 220, Casper, WY 82604. Postmark March 20.

Enrollment is limited to the first eight people who sign up.
