The Art of the Essay with Elayne Clift
September 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
THE ART OF THE ESSAY: A WRITING WORKSHOP WITH ELAYNE CLIFT AT PUTNEY
Join author Elayne Clift for a writing workshop on Wednesday, September
6th at 7pm at Putney Public Library.
This workshop explores what an essay is and why we write them. It
includes the necessary elements of writing good creative non-fiction
pieces that can range from political commentary to humorous 1st Person
accounts – and anything else that is based on truth or opinion. We will
explore tone and “voice,” style, structure, point of view, use of
dialogue, researching facts, and more. And we’ll be hands-on, doing a
practice piece to share and discuss (voluntarily) in the spirit of
mutual learning. Come prepared to ruminate, rant, and reflect!
This workshop is presented in partnership with The Commons through their
Media Mentoring Project.
Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main St in Putney, VT. This event
is free and open to the public.
