Georgetown to get things write with penmanship classes

September 20, 2013 by  

The 2013-2014 schedule of Writers’ College classes was recently posted by the San Gabriel Writers’ League in Georgetown. The sessions are held in the public meeting space at the Georgetown Public Library. The Writers’ League is collaborating with the Writers’ College in the program, with 50% of the course fees donated to the local library.

Registration is underway for several courses, and takes place in the library Reference Desk area located on the second floor. Method of payment may be either in cash or by check, as credit cards are not accepted. Registration must be completed at least one week before the beginning of class.

The next class, Historical Fiction, will begin on October 3 and run for four consecutive weeks in two-hour sessions. The instructor is Dunbar Campbell. ‘Writing the Short Story’ and ‘Flash Fiction’ will be held October 9 for four weeks, with Joan Upton Hall instructing.

On November 6 and 13, nonfiction classes will be held, for which David Ciambrone is the instructor. For those interested in poetry, a class is scheduled beginning November 12 for four weeks with two instructors, Carol Menchu and Jeanell Bolton.

Print companies frequently work with educational entities in providing materials to market the classes. Catalog printing is a common request, as the catalogs can list all classes and related information and be easily distributed.

Four-week classes have a fee of $75, while the two day classes charge $40. For more information, visit the Gabriel Writers’ League in Georgetown website.
