Here is a description of her class:
If you’ve ever felt too fat, too thin, too short, too tall, too pale, too dark, or even just right, it’s time to tell your story. We’ll develop prose, poetry, and monologues that deal with the daunting topic of body image. We’ll spend the morning sharing, laughing, creating, and reading. Several pieces will be selected for incorporation into a one-act play to be performed on Nov. 21 and 8:00 pm. For all women writers. FREE. Donna Ison
If you are interested in signing up, give us a call (859.254.4175) or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
