Dip into writing! Harrisburg Community Programming will offer its first ever writing workshop series. Writes of Summer is a mix of three two-hour workshops. The same qualities of good writing apply to everything from blogs to books. No matter your background or interest, join us to become the writer you always dreamed you could be!
Geared for ages 18yo and up. All materials provided, but bring a favorite pen if you have one. Attend one or attend all three! Meet in the Liberty Elementary Community Room across the hall from the Library. 200 E Willow Street | Use Entrance F on the southeast corner of the building. 

Week One – Sunday, July 9 | 6pm-8pm
Write as a Naturalist – A nature writing workshop.
Nature writing is perhaps the most American form of writing. It celebrates open spaces and the environment. It is observational, it's first-person, and it involves the senses.
Journal writing will be the focus.

Week Two – Sunday, July 16 | 6pm-8pm
Writing a Memoir.
Participants will be guided through the process of writing their own short memoir about a meaningful moment in their lives. Come to class with a memory you want to write about.

Week Three – Sunday, July 23 | 6pm-8pm
Writing a Children's Storybook.
Do you have a plotline for kids? Bring your ideas and we'll take it from there! Participants will learn the basics for writing their own children's storybook.
