Join writing instructor and author Marn Norwich for a free intro to an eight-part creative writing medley workshop series. The Power-Pack is constructed around eight "rules" for writers and how we can incorporate them into our writing and our lives. Through prompts, writing games and the perspectives of great writers, the Power-Pack encourages participants to get inspired, write, experiment and keep on writing!

Classes include:

• Exploration in your choice genre

• Input, ideas and inspiration on the creative writing process

• Writing exercises and/or prompts to inspire

• Optional, non-critical reading of our work

• Opportunity to meet fellow writers

The free intro workshop is generously hosted by Vancity and will be held at the Vancity Community Stage, at 1675 Commercial Drive, on Wednesday June 5, 2019, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.

"Just finished a six week 'Creative Writing Power-Pack' with Marn and several other creative types. You can find Marn on the hashtag#MEETUP App. Awesome!!! Great learning from students and Marn alike. Diverse group and all supportive. Felt like 'home' no matter who attended. Marn is a very special person with lots to share and encourages each person to share as well. INCLUSIVE. Check her offerings out on hashtag#MEETUP. I’m in for more sharing, caring and learning from gentle nudges."
