Instructor: Coleen M. Paratore Member:74 | Non-Member:82 Enrollment Max: 10

Writers of all ages, genres, beginners and pros are welcome to take part in this inspirational writing “bootcamp”. On Friday (3:30-5)we’ll talk about Firefly Writing…catching those bright bits of light as they come….then travel to the Firefly Fields inside our own minds and hearts, for the sparks that ignite our most powerful writing. We’ll write and share, write and share. Then on Saturday (2-3:30) participants will zero in on what’s “sparking” brightest for them and write one powerful piece no more than one page in length. On Sunday (2-3:30), more discussion of writing and revisions and our goals moving forward, and then we will gather, coffee-house style and listen as we read our powerful pieces. Coleen Paratore’s latest title, Dreamsleeves, Scholastic Press, ages 10-adult, by the editor of the Hunger Games trilogy, is set in circa 1970’s Troy, New York, and is inspired by the author’s life. Her new book, FIREFLIES: A Writer’s Notebook (all ages) debuts in 2014. Check out her website:
