Women For Women Learning Center celebrates 4th anniversary in September
Women For Women Learning Center will celebrate its fourth anniversary with the launching of a ten-session "Write For Fun Or Profit" class, according to Carla Nelson, founder of Women For Women Learning Center. The writing class will be taught by life-long writer and teacher, Willma Gore, in Village of Oak Creek, and begins on Sept. 13 at 9 a.m.
"This is our 'headliner' for September," Nelson said.
At the first writing session (no charge) Gore will present the plan and content for the subsequent 10 sessions.
"I want participants to know that I do not guarantee they will be published, but with more than 40 years of writing travel and how-to articles, personal essays, short stories, and profiles, as well as children's and adult books, I have a wealth of information to share. My experience has brought publication of my words and photographs in more than 75 national and regional magazines and newspapers," Gore said.
Her monthly column, "Sassy Senior" appears in The Villager, published in and for readers in the Village of Oak Creek.
The bulk of the proceeds are used to support the Women For Women Learning Center. Cost is $10 per session or $85 for the ten sessions if paid in full on Sept. 13. Call Gore at 284-7447.to reserve and for directions to her home. Space is limited to ten participants. First come, first, served.
