Holiday writing class offered

The river’s end bookstore is offering the next in its series of programs for writers and those interested in becoming writers.

“Gift-Wrapped: Capturing Our Holiday Memories” will offer a relaxed and reflective writing experience during the often-hectic holiday season.

Writing instructor Jim Farfaglia will provide activities to encourage creative writing and to enjoy the quieter aspects of the holiday.

The class will be held at the bookstore, located on West Second and Bridge Street in Oswego, and will run for six Thursdays, beginning Nov. 7 and continuing through Dec. 19.

There will be no class the week of Thanksgiving. Classes will run from 6 to 7:45 p.m.

“The holidays can be a highly emotional time,” said Farfaglia. “I wanted to present a class that could provide participants with an opportunity to create a unique holiday gift, as well as to provide an ‘escape’ from the season’s pressure. The staff at river’s end were very welcoming to this idea.”

Class time will include instructor-led activities concerning holiday memories, time for participants to share  ideas for possible gifts of writing and time spent sharing our work with each other.

No previous writing experience is necessary.

There is a fee for the class. For more information, or to register, contact the river’s end bookstore at 342-0077, or visit Farfaglia’s website at jimfarfaglia.weebly.com and click on “Writing Classes.”
