Featured Skill Building Classes

Looking for ways to improve your writing skills this spring? Check out these great writing classes offered this quarter!


The Secrets of Powerful Writing April 10th

Good writing doesn't have to be hard if you know the secrets! Whatever you write, professional or personal, you'll benefit from being able to express yourself clearly and directly. In this hands-on class you'll learn to clarify your message, communicate complex information, avoid common mistakes, edit and proofread your writing, use proper grammar and punctuation, communicate on social and electronic media, and more.


Grant-Writing April 14th

Take the mystery out of grant writing in this content-rich and hands-on course designed to dramatically improve your grant writing skills. You'll learn how to research potential funders, analyze their requirements, and assemble the components of grant proposals essential to receiving funding. You'll also gain the tools to write a compelling narrative, create a project budget, and provide accurate reporting so that funders say "yes" again and again. Bring to class a project or nonprofit you want to support, and be prepared to write outside of class. Instructor Virginia Lang has written, reviewed, and administered hundreds of successful grants over the past 35 years.


Free-Writing Workshop April 20th

Discover a gentle, safely supportive approach to writing. With prompts and creative writing tips, we will free write together in 10-12 minute sessions. Then each student has a chance to read what they wrote, and the class responds with exclusively supportive feedback. As an option, your free-writes can be turned into more polished drafts later. Beginning writers are welcome.


Writing A Short Memoir May 8th

Turn your life experiences--dramatic and everyday--into a powerful short memoir. If you've wanted to write about your life but don't have time to tackle a book project, this class is for you! Tell the story of your life in bite-sized chunks. This class will lead you step-by-step through writing a short memoir piece: from selecting and reflecting on your experience, to writing and publishing your story. By the end of the class, you'll have a short memoir piece ready to publish.
