Sunday Nov. 30 • 10:30-1:30 pm • $75
 
 
 
A creative-writing workshop for "adult kids" who want to loosen the grip of the critic and have some fun. With the tried and true methods that Karen Benke has used for decades writing with children, the secrets of playing on the page will be revealed to you too. We’ll experiment accessing the imagination you had as a child (yes, you still have it) and each participant leaves not only with a piece of writing that you will be eager to share, but also with writing related gifts to help inspire you at home.  
 
Karen Benke is the author of Rip the Page! Adventures in Creative Writing (for kids of all ages), Leap Write In! Writing to Stretch and Surprise Your One-of-a-Kind Mind (intended for teens and adults) & the forthcoming Uncap That Pen! A Book on Writing Letters by Hand.
