Six Weeks of Exploring...
Do you already love to write or want to learn the sweet, sweet art of expressing your ideas and what matters most to you? Or maybe keeping a journal is more your style?

Either way, come on out to this six-week course and choose your own adventure in the creativity of the written word! Each cohort will have three weeks with Linda to discover creative writing and three weeks with Stephen to make your own zines!
