Writing Workshop with Amy Halloran

Tuesday, September 19th at 6:00 pm (YWCA-GCR)

Everyone has a story, and capturing that essence in a small story can help us humanize each other. The practice of really seeing someone can reduce the tendency to see someone as a writingThem, rather than another familiar person, an Us. Words can make us be bridges to each other, rather than walls. This workshop will cover the basics of informal interviewing, using a simple question and answer style to gather facts and feelings. This material becomes the ingredients for brief written profiles, or snapshots in words. The class will give you a model you can use elsewhere, at family gatherings, school events, and also, at the three writing events that will be happening around the city of Troy in this series.

This program is free and open to the public. This is a drop-in class and no registration is needed.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by The Arts Center of the Capital Region.
