Life Writing

Hi, all!

I hope that everyone enjoyed a relaxing, wonderful Labor day break. The Carnegie Center is back up and running---and excitedly awaiting the start of classes next week! We are continuing class registrations, but for our Life Writing Master Class, we are nearing the end of possible registration time. If you are interested in submitting for the Life Writing class, the submission deadline will be this Thursday, September 4th. Submissions can be mailed (251 West Second Street/Lexington, KY 40507) or emailed in (ccll1@carnegieliteracy.org). Here are the details:

Life Writing Master Class: Discovering the Form in Your Life’s Stories*
Wednesdays Oct. 1 to Nov. 19 5:00-7:30 pm

This advanced-level class aims to guide writers who are shaping a memoir or series of essays or stories based on life experience as they discover possible forms for this writing. We will look at the forms autobiography and memoir take and also explore how to create a linked series of essays or stories which reveal a theme (or themes) in our life experience. Applicants must submit a 15-page writing sample – memoir, essay, or story based in autobiography. The submissions will be juried. Class limit: 10 participants. $150. Leatha Kendrick

Here's Leatha at her recent book release party at the Carnegie Center. If you haven't worked with Leatha before, you are in for a real treat. For those of you that have taken her classes before, you know exactly what I mean.

See you soon!
