Join other emerging writers in Redmond for the Writing Ranch’s trademark creative writing workshop, The Story You Came To Tell. Award-winning author and poet Ellen Waterston will teach her popular creative writing class at Central Oregon Community College’s (COCC) Redmond campus Tuesdays and Thursdays, February 14 – March 7, 4-6pm. The series will conclude with a reading of student work on Friday, March 10.
Over the past decade, 500+ writers have reignited their creative writing and recommitted to a consistent writing practice, thanks to this series. Each class will explore the intersection of literary nonfiction and fiction in long- and short-form prose and poetry. Participants will develop their creative writing skills through in-class writing exercises, supplementary readings and writing assignments. Class fee includes a printed copy of a class anthology for each student.
Previous students of “The Story You Came To Tell” have said this about the class: “I will never view the creation of poetry and prose the same again!” “You are an inspiration as well as an excellent instructor.” “You have the natural gift of a great teacher, always giving exactly the information we needed at the right moment in our progression as writers. Thank you for offering these workshops.”
