Whether you're wanting to pen your family history or the great American novel, join us for a discussion on how to get started--or break through a slump. There'll be hands-on exercises useful for beginners and those with experience. This hour-long session will touch on techniques and tools for bloggers, fiction writers and memoirists. Attendees will also hear about the roll-out of future writing workshops. Bring a notebook and pen and leave feeling motivated and inspired.
