Writers Read offers free creative writing workshops

FALLBROOK – Writers Read at Fallbrook Library offers two new creative writing workshops, this spring and summer: Writing for Our Lives, a workshop for women, and Summer Read and Critique. Both of the free workshops meet weekly for four, three-hour sessions.

Writing for Our Lives helps women explore their writing voices. The workshop is for all women, seasoned writers and new, age 16 and older. Through a series of writing and sensory exercises, participants will explore the ways of expressing the things they have always wanted to say, whether the words are sorrowful or funny or frightening, peaceful or agitating. The workshop meets Tuesdays, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., April 4, 18, 25 and May 2.

Summer Read and Critique is a group of committed writers who appreciate constructive input and writerly camaraderie. Participants share pages weekly in a supportive workshop environment, receive guided feedback, and move their project forward. This workshop meets Saturdays, from 1 to 4 p.m., June 3, 10, 17 and 24.

The workshops are facilitated by Kit-Bacon Gressitt. She has an MFA in creative writing, with an emphasis in narrative nonfiction, and has taught women’ss in the Cal State University system. An award-winning feminist columnist for the North County Times, she also wrote book reviews and author features for the paper.

Advance registration is required. Register at the library’s front desk or call (760) 731-4650. Each workshop is limited to 10 people, so register early. Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission.
