I hope to get into Jayne Jaudon Ferrer's class at JCCFS this summer. You know Jayne is a poet and delightful speaker. I look forward to getting to know her as a teacher. Jayne is the NCWN West Representative for S.C.
Her books show her humor and her sensitivity to all the subjects we deal with in our daily lives.
See information about her class here.
Harnessing the Power of Words will be taught at John C. Campbell Folk School August 15 - 21. 2010.
Instructor: Jayne Jaudon Ferrer
Each of us has something important to say, but just as we speak in different dialects, we write in different genres. Find your writing niche as we explore the power and appeal of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir, journals, letters and blogs.
This class will help you find the format best suited to your voice through creative writing prompts, supportive sharing, and gentle critiques. From business people to retirees, novelists to bloggers...all are welcome.
TUITION for the full week is $527.00. If you have not been to the John Campbell Folk School, you must come and experience the delight of the community , the excellent food served three times a day, the music and entertainment, and best of all, the people you meet here. Lasting friendships are formed in this special place.
Folks who live in the local area are eligible for 1/2 price tuition. But you have to ask.
So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca
