Creative Writing Workshop
Have you ever felt that you have so much to say but simply need the opportunity to get started? Or do you already have a few unfinished chapters lying around and want to work on improving your craft? This is an opportunity you don't want to miss.
LAU's Department of English will be hosting poet Jayson Iwen in a workshop on creative writing.
You can also send him your unfinished work before the workshop, and he'll look at your writing ahead of time.
To reserve or send your poem/short story to Dr. Iwen, please send us an email to d3JpdGluZyAhIHdvcmtzaG9wIHwgbGF1ICEgZWR1ICEgbGI= before March 8.
Free registration, but places are limited so book your spot early!
