12:30 p.m.Writing Workshop with Ellen Aug Lytle
Anyone interested in any type of writing is invited to participate. Each student is required to bring only a pen and pad. We do ‘free writing’ exercises in class. These warm-ups help to loosen all the debris we accumulate, sometimes for decades. Imagination is also coaxed and brought out. This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
