Look for this workshop
next season!

All around us, there are great real-life stories waiting to be told. Maybe it’s an interesting local character, a building with a bizarre history, or the best block party in town. Whether it’s heartbreaking, hilarious, inspiring or strange, our communities are full of untold tales. In this workshop, you’ll sharpen your senses as community journalist, uncovering worthwhile local stories and bringing them to life through clear and engaging writing. You will investigate and write a polished journalistic piece (or two!) on a topic of your choice, which will be published in Volume One, Issue One of our own local newspaper.
