TELOS - Creative Writing

Whether you are a beginning writer or an experienced one, whether your interest is in memoir writing, fiction or non-fiction, you will benefit from this class. Exchange of ideas and opinions is an important tool in the development of your writing skills. Priming the pump uncovers a myriad of memories and touches the creative center in all of us.
Come share the laughter and enjoy friendly exchanges with your peers. Since the class involves reading and critiquing, each section must be limited to 12 students, so register early.
