Creative Writing Class at Tri-County Community College, Murphy, 3/1/2016. Hurry, two openings left!



Creative Writing Class, (Six Weeks)

with Glenda C. Beall,  

 Teacher, published writer and poet 
               at Tri-County Community College in Murphy

Begins March 1, 2016, Tuesdays 6 – 8 p.m. – Ends April 5, 2016
           Twelve hours of classes @ $35.00 Great opportunity


If you have never taken writing classes and you like to write but you are not sure your writing is all that good, come to this casual class for beginning writers or intermediate writers.

 
If you don’t know what you want to write, fiction or nonfiction, poetry or articles, this is the class for you. We will give you opportunities to try them all and see what you like best.

You might be afraid to share your writing, shy, and maybe you were discouraged by a teacher or another adult when you were a kid. This is the class for you. No one is expected to read out loud unless he or she wants to do so.

Your fellow classmates will encourage and help you. Your instructor will make sure you are happy in class and that you are learning what you want to know.

Register now. We have two places open, so contact Lisa Long at Tri-County Community College and get your name on the list before Tuesday, March 1.

Take that step and follow that dream of being a writer. You will be so happy you did.

Blog Class

Kay Lake (center standing) teaches computer classes to Netwest members in Hayesville, NC


Netwest hosted a free class on building a blog and eleven attendees are bloggers tonight. The group met with instructor Kay Lake at the Moss Library in Hayesville, NC today. They varied in range of experience from some who had never seen a blog to one who helps friends with websites. Within in a short time energy filled the room, and once the initial fear of the process passed, the new bloggers took to the keyboards like chickens pecking corn. Brenda Kay Ledford was the first to post to the Netwest blog. I'm sure we will see more from her in the near future.
As the internet grows in importance in the life of writers, and all people around the world, we must keep up with technology, no matter our age. Younger generations have set the pace and it is a fast one.
I heard more than one "damn" and "I can't, I just can't" today, but the frustration soon gave way to feelings of accomplishment and pride. As Kay Lake told us today, learning new things builds dendrites which connect cells in our brains. Stroke victims are often prescribed computer lessons to heal and rehab the brain
What better way than to build a blog and write every day? More senior adults use computers on a regular basis than younger folk. Of course the younger ones have gone on to more sophisticated technology than email and google research.

Today I was told I should subscribe to Skype. Guess that is the next project I'll try in order to increase my dendrites.
