Brian's schedule  has something for everyone; from beginner to advanced writers, and everyone in
between. The "Welcome to Creative Writing" and "Writing Your Life" courses are a great place
to start. If you have your own writing project in progress, such as short stories, memoirs, or a novel, 
you'll benefit from a "Next Step in Creative Writing" course. More experienced writers will want 
an "Intensive Creative Writing" course to work on their writing projects and hone their skills.
One-day workshops that address things such as How to Build Your Story and How to Get
Published are offered on Saturdays or Sundays. A great way to spend a day with people who
share a passion for words.

See you at a course or workshop soon!
