Writing classes at Tri-County Community College in September

I finished my August class at Tri-County Community College last night. This was one of those groups of people who seemed to bond right away. Their enthusiasm motivated each other. Their enthusiasm motivated ME. 

We had one man and seven women in the class. Our lone male stood his ground well but was not arrogant or combative as some men are when outnumbered by the opposite sex. He was a gentleman of the old school and a good writer. His subject was military life in Viet Nam, and he made us laugh.

Because everyone enjoyed this class and wanted to continue, we decided to hold another class beginning September 2, Tuesdays, 6 - 8 p.m. The title of the class is Write What You Like. That means we feature fiction, nonfiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, and poetry to give everyone a taste of it all. But for homework, students write what they like to write. 

I hope anyone who lives locally, in the area of TCCC, will call Lisa Thompson at the Community Enrichment department if you would like to attend four classes in September. The fee is only $29.00, but you must register before class time on Tuesday.

I do wish I lived close enough to join your class, it sounds perfect. But maybe I will look for one here, now that you've inspired me. :-)

You would enjoy this class, DJan. I think you would enjoy a writing class and encourage you to find one near you. Often, through a class a writer finds someone or a couple of people they feel are kindred souls and form lasting friendships as I have done.
I have two dear writing friends who share their work with me and I with them. We tell each other truths about what we like, don't like or what needs more explanation, etc. You are already an excellent writer, but I think you would enjoy a class with a good instructor.
