  • April 15, 2019 - 5:30pm
  • Springfield Public Library | 225 5th St Suite 301, Springfield, OR 97477

Ready to use writing prompts and exercises to jump your creativity? Sidestep perfectionism and get words on the page with Jessica Cagle-Faber. 

This two-hour class is designed to inspire writers of all levels. We will use prompts (or writing exercises) that work for all types of writing, from memoir and personal essay to poetry and fiction. With just an old-school notebook and pen, we will generate ideas rapidly, while sidestepping the perfectionism that often stifles creativity. Or bring your laptop. Those who want to can share what they have written. Come and get ideas for your next novel, poem, or nonfiction work. 

This event is free and open to the public.

About the instructor: Jessica Cagle Faber started her writing career in journalism, writing for the Register-Guard and Eugene Weekly. She recently graduated with an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College and can be seen around town revising her first novel with a chai in hand. 

These free workshops are brought to you by Springfield Public Library and Wordcrafters in Eugene with support from the Springfield Library Foundation.
