Fall 2013 Writing Classes at Tech College of the Lowcountry

Putting Your Life on the Lines: Memoir Writing

Your life story doesn't have to have been overly dramatic in order to write a memoir. And in this class, you'll recount and record those tales you've been telling your family, children and grandkids for years. Whether you choose to write about a specific experience or cover a number of years' worth, you'll learn the skills necessary to organize and craft a written legacy for yourself, your family and/or publication. By the end of the six weeks, you'll have a great start on your memoir in hand.

October 1 through November 5, 2013, Tuesdays, 6-8p, Beaufort Campus $110


Travel Right...Travel Write!

How would you like to manifest trips to exotic destinations on someone else's nickel, or to travel on your own and earn back your expenses, just by writing a story about your experience? Freelance travel writers do both, and this class shows you how. In-class and take-home exercises help teach the nuts and bolts of writing a travel story that publications will snap right up.

Both classes are taught by Katherine Tandy Brown, a successful freelance writer for more than 20 years. She is also a workshop leader and writing coach, and is currently writing her first novel.

October 14 through November 18, 2013,  Mondays, 6-8p, Beaufort Campus $79
