River’s End Bookstore Hosts Holiday Writing Class

OSWEGO, NY – 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 streets in Oswego, and will run for six Thursdays, beginning November 7 and continuing through December 19.

There will be no class the week of Thanksgiving.

Class time 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 was very welcoming to this idea.”

Class time will include instructor-led activities around 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.
