Writers Center to hold a Special Topics Series
The Elgin Community College Writers Center will hold the Special Topics Series "Connect the Dots: Creating Artful Memoir from Everyday Lives," on Saturday, Nov. 10. This free event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in Building B, Room B269, at the college, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin.
Presenting is Marianne Woods Cirone, who has taught fiction and nonfiction writing techniques to adult students in the community setting. She also is the wellness coordinator of the LivingWell Cancer Resource Center in Geneva.
Woods Cirone will discuss how writers can use all three parts of the "triune brain" to trick their inner critics into submission and unearth stories that helps create meaningful connections in our lives. This workshop also explores nontraditional memoir forms (such as poems, visual collage, and braided essays), and offer process techniques including using images, recipes, lists and mind mapping as starting points.
If you have any questions about this or other Writers Center activities, contact Rachael Tecza at (847) 214-7578 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
