Online fiction writers workshop offered through HCC
Submitted by Leigh-Anne Mauk on Tue, 05/25/2010 - 9:40am
This June, Hagerstown Community College’s Continuing Education and Community Services division will offer its first online fiction writing workshop.
This eight-week non-credit course will provide aspiring writers with step-by-step guidance in creating short stories, as well as offer tips on getting published. The course is designed to be accessible to writers of all levels and skill sets.
“Anybody who’s into writing stories can benefit from this workshop whether they’ve already been published or they just want to see if it’s their cup of tea,” says HCC instructor Julie Castillo.
Castillo is a writer, editor, and professional story consultant and has15 years experience in the publishing industry. She has also co-written or ghost-written over a dozen books, including two New York Times bestsellers.
The workshop runs June 20 through Aug. 14. Prior to the workshop start date, an orientation will be held for students at HCC’s Valley Mall extension site in Hagerstown. Students will meet the instructor and their fellow classmates in person and will be shown how to navigate the online Blackboard site.
