Come ready to learn skills that will help you in creating and developing the best essay by telling your authentic story; Saturday, Nov. 10 at 12 P.M. in CPACS room 132.
This is an interactive workshop in which each participant through modeling and storytelling and a quick write activity will come to face the unflinching truth that each of us has a story to tell and that we should write it, because if we don't...who will?
