Wednesdays, June 9 through 30, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
The earth has a lot of stories to tell, some shady and some bright like the sun. She’s certainly responsible for the care of all life that has ever come and gone upon her, including yours, the botanicals, the furries and the flyers, the swimmers and creepy crawlers, too. She provides promises of healthy backyard produce and disappoints when your radishes come out too small. In this class you’ll learn non-fiction writing skills that turn failed radishes into life guidance and cooking recipes into travel stories. Learn through class work and peer sharing how to nourish your reader’s mind like the earthworm transforms soil. You’ll practice your writing skills averaging 500 to 1,000 words per week and/or spend 1-3 hours per week on writing exercises done at home. This will vary depending on how deep into the soil you choose to travel each week. Let’s elevate how we think about our world together.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Stacey Curtis has been penning and planting since before the double-digits of childhood. While the garden provided a way of being out, helping mom and watching cucumbers climb, the pen provided a way of being in, helping herself understand the world transpiring before her. She has worked for twenty years as a professional editor and author. She enjoys inspiring wild expression, so that people might write as unbridled as nature itself to break through the tough soil. She is equally passionate about providing professional tools and insight to shape the hard work of writers like a pruned and tended garden.
