Spanning the time period of both world wars, a must read is “The Book of Ebenezer Le Page,” by G. B. Edwards. It is a little-known book with wonderful insight into views on different cultures and the perception of aging. It takes place in Guernsey, one of the English Channel islands. The 80-year-old narrator is an inhabitant of the islands and is strenuously resisting attempts by others to move him away from his home as he does not think 80 is necessarily so old, and he is right.

A two-hour session of two to four topics (nonreligious and apolitical) is structured like this: a topic is assigned by the instructor, and class members write on the topic for ten minutes. Then each person reads his/her piece if they so desire, and group members comment. No negative criticism is allowed. Discussions are positive, and members enjoy hearing what others have written on the same subject. To quote a recent participant: “I also think it’s been a great way to just get to know one another. We’ve had some great conversations around our writing subjects, which encourages me to want to write more after leaving the class. It’s also helped me understand my thought process a little more and how some subjects flow easily and others stump me. I often find the subjects that stump me are the subjects I need to dig deeper into.” Join this creative and fun group-writing class to unlock the wellspring of your thoughts, ideas, writing capabilities, and talents!

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Everyone has a story to tell, but not everyone can write it. Are you a writer who loves your craft and also has a passion for listening to what others have to say? Then “Ghostwriting” may be for you. A ghostwriter is a person who writes literary or journalistic works, or other texts that are officially credited to another person as the author. In this class your instructor shares her moving experience in ghostwriting a book for a widow of a Korean War Veteran and triple amputee. Ghostwriting can be a vocation, a business or a calling. Whatever the reason you embark on this journey, you will find that ghostwriting is an exercise in compassion. The ghostwriter takes a walk in the shoes of the author to understand and internalize not only the facts of the story, but the subtle meaning behind the words, the passion of the author telling it, the inflection and style, and so much more so that your writing will accurately reflect the author’s intent. Your instructor reviews how to gather the required information from the author. You will experience the interview process by practicing and receiving feedback within directed exercises.

Participants in this novel experience will read an assigned novel and engage in a lively discussion about the book at the first meeting. During the second meeting, the group will be treated to a cooking demonstration presenting some of the foods related to the story’s locale. A light lunch, including those prepared dishes, will be the final chapter, as all will enjoy the meal while completing any further conversation about the novel.
