Floyd Writers, we know you're out there! Come join this interesting workshop to engage your writing in ways you hadn't thought of before. Here in Floyd we have much beauty accessible to us, but every environment around the world provides writing opportunities. In this class we will explore how various scenes from film can generate unique, new material. Whether you are an experienced writer or a novice, please join us for an engaging and educational experience. You will walk away with plenty of new ideas and starters for your writing. Whether your preference is fiction, poetry, memoir or any other type of prose, this class will generate fresh material for your repertoire. Participants will be expected to share aspects of their writing with the class as we all delve into the depth of the writing world.

About the Instructor
I have my BA in English Teaching and my MAT in Secondary Education, both from the University of New Hampshire. I have over five years experience teaching High School English in New Hampshire, and much time spent in various internships, substitute teaching, observations, etc., at all different grade levels. I taught a Community College course in American Literature to a group of Firemen in NH who were earning their Associate's Degree. This class was actually taught at the Fire Station. I earned my TEFL certificate in Prague, CZ through a rigorous month of instruction while living abroad. I have led multiple Creative Writing workshops over Zoom and in person, taught English as a foreign language to a group of Russians for about two years, raised two creative and independent children of my own, and write literally wherever I go. I was a Contributing Writer for "St.Augustine Social" magazine in St.Augustine, Florida, which involved interviewing local people and writing about them. I also have a poem published in a leading Educational Journal for Teachers of English, "English Journal." I have traveled extensively and come from a family of educators, as my parents were Professors, writers and teachers.
