Class Information:

Classes will be held on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from 4:30-6:30 pm.  2017 class dates are: July 9, July 12, July 16, July 19, and July 23.

Students should arrive at each session with writing materials and/or a computer, along with completed assignments from the previous session.

Because there is a curriculum and take-home work, students may not take this class on a drop-in basis.  Unavoidable conflicts or family emergencies can be discussed on an individual basis with the instructor.  Should the instructor be unable to hold class, she will attempt to schedule a make-up class.
