Published author and RAP member Elaine Shaw will conduct three interactive workshops for beginning writers who are looking for some direction and helpful critiquing. Each workshop will start with a presentation and Q-and-A period followed by taking pen in hand and writing a short piece. The workshop will conclude with reading, sharing, listening and absorbing comments. Each workshop is limited to 15 people.

The workshops include: Writers Workshop I: "How to Begin," on Thursday, July 19 (use course ID NRA S75 001 when registering); Writers Workshop II: "Focus and Theme," on Thursday, July 26 (use course ID NRA S76 001 when registering); and Writers Workshop III: "Outlines and Plots," on Thursday, Aug. 2 (use course ID NRA S77 001 when registering).

RAP is a membership-based, noncredit program dedicated to adults ages 50 and older who are active, curious and serious about continually learning. The cost for a one-year membership is $25, and you must be a member to register for most classes.

The cost of each workshop is $15. To register for any class or to become a RAP member, course ID NRA C01 003, call the MCC Registration Office at (815) 455-8588. For more information, call Cindy Kearns at (815) 479-7605.
