The instructor, Elizabeth Potter, will present proven writing prompts and techniques to tickle your muse and coax even the most hesitant voice onto the page.

In addition, possible publishing leads and resources will be presented.

Those interested in participating in this class will be asked to submit 7-10 pages of prose or 3-5 pages of poetry for consideration to the instructor, Elizabeth Potter (potterem@ hotmail.com). The cost of the class includes suggestions for revision and line editing of the submitted manuscript by the instructor, a group critique session, and suggestions for possible publication.
