Writing With Ease and Confidence

Taught by Mrs. Jeri Williams


Writing is thinking on paper! We write differently in different situations for different purposes. In this class, you will be putting ideas and experiences in written form in various styles. You will be learning how to write something worth reading . To learn this, we must ask ourselves: Do I have a subject or idea worth writing about? Do I have something of importance to say about it? When we understand these two questions, and apply practice, writing becomes easier So....let's begin to write!

All writing levels are welcome. We are all individuals striving to improve our writing skills. Writing is a learned skill and we must practice it or we lose the ability to express ideas clearly.

Days: Wednesdays

Time: 7:30-8:20am

Location: C13

Cost: $100
