FOUR WRITING PROMPTS: THE BEGINNING OF FOUR NEW STORIES OR POEMS

The more you write, the luckier you get–and each time you start a piece, there’s an opportunity to get luckier than ever. The trick is getting started. Here, you’ll not only begin four new pieces, but will learn strategies to begin many more. The 90-minute session is open to writers of all levels and experience.

In addition to being a fiddler (with nine CDs), Ken Waldman is a former college professor with an MFA in Creative Writing. He has seven full-length poetry collections, a memoir (about his life as a touring artist), a children’s book, and over 400 of his stories and poems have appeared in such journals as Poet Lore, Beloit Poetry Journal, and Quarterly West. This will be his first ever public appearance in Big Sky, and he’s here amidst a far-ranging Western tour.  www.kenwaldman.com

Class is $20 for adults, $10 for students, and includes a complimentary book or CD. Fee waivers are available for students. Call 406-995-2742 to sign up or for more info. Walk-ins welcome!
