Ann Holdreith sez:
"Really good descriptive writing uses all the senses and takes us into the experience in a way that is highly detailed, captivating and surprising. Please bring to this workshop
· a favorite photo album, keepsake or art book, and
· a brief passage from the work of a great writer that you feel is a highly effective piece of description.
"We will use these prompts to consider how richness of detail involves all the senses, and how sensual metaphor in your own prose or poetry can make it come alive and draw the reader into a unique and vivid world."
Ann will lead the Oakwood Creative Writing workshop next Wednesday, October 12, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., in the Oakwood Family Center/Oakwood Learning Center, Conference Room B, in Dearborn.
The fee per session is still only $10 – incredible! You may pay the fee when you attend. Please make checks payable to Springfed Arts.

Our monthly 90-minute mini-courses are open to everyone who loves to write! Please join us if you have an interest in doing a bit of writing and learning – no experience necessary.
You know our workshops are always fun and a wonderful way to connect to the writing world. They are a smart and effective way to explore your individual style and strengthen your powers of description, expression and narrative.

Creative Writing is for all writers 15 years old and older. Please bring paper and a pen or pencil.
The Oakwood Family Center/Oakwood Learning Center is located at 18501 Rotunda Drive in Dearborn. It is an accessible, warm and comfortable new atmosphere for learning with ample, close-in visitor parking.

Writers explore their individual styles, strengthen their powers of description, expression and narrative, and practice with others to communicate more vigorously and entertainingly. All residents of southeast Michigan age 15 and older who love to write and who use writing as a creative outlet or career focus are invited to our workshops. OCW is presented in collaboration with Oakwood Arts for the Spirit and Springfed Arts/Metro Detroit Writers and funded by the Oakwood Foundation.
