Writing Just for Fun

WRITING JUST FOR FUN Are you interested in writing just for fun? Maybe you just want to indulge in something that you once loved years ago, but never had time for. Or do you feel you might have an undeveloped talent and need some guidance? If so, this is a great class for improving your everyday writing skills. Each class is separate so you can take just one or all of them! The class on memoir writing is in two parts but is designed to accommodate anyone who misses Part I. This season we have added two more fiction writing classes. Many people who have taken our fiction writing classes before are eager to progress to more advanced levels. For these new classes ? Fiction Writing Part 3 and Part 4 -- we require that you take Fiction Writing Part 1 and Part 2. Sometimes the only way to progress as a writer is to share work with others. So part of each class will be devoted to talking about what we write. This will be fun and informal! Instructor Joe Peschel is an outstanding instructor and has had wonderful evaluations from our members. He has been a freelance writer for many years and has had work published in the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, the Barnes & Noble Review, the Raleigh News, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Kansas City Star, the Charlotte Observer, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, as well as a variety of computer publications.1 Please bring a writing pad and pen or a laptop computer if you have one.

Communicate With Horses
5/15
Sioux City
As a child did you always admire horses from afar? Have you wanted to learn more about horses? Whether or not you have ever been around a horse, this class will make you more confident around them. Learning to Communicate with Horses is a non-riding horse class for adults 50 and over who have always wanted to learn about these majestic creatures. This half-day class will teach you safe communication with horses. You'll experience a silky muzzle, warmth of breath and the feeling of serenity as you connect with a horse. Learn how horses communicate with each other, and how to safely interact and engage in activities that encourage bonding between horse and human. Sometimes this bond can help the human heart to heal when there has been a loss or sad experience or traumatic incident in a person's life. At the end of the workshop, you will have enough confidence and knowledge to be comfortable in the presence of the horses. We also hope you might consider taking our class Silver Saddles (see below) which will provide a gentle introduction to horsemanship. Classes are held at the S.T.A.R.S. Riding Center just 1 ½ miles north of Mike's Saloon on Hamilton Boulevard. Please dress comfortably (no sandals please!) in layers and bring a sack lunch. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided. Participants must be fit enough to stand and walk on uneven surfaces.
