Have you had your fill of analytical essays about other people's writing? Do you want to write your own stories and poems? Maybe you want to be the writer other students will be studying one day? Have ideas but need a supportive community of writers to push your pen to paper?
Join us for stimulating workshops that will help you develop a strong writing voice and increase your confidence in your talents. You will receive a set of contemporary poems for discussion, information about writing camps, contests, and public readings. We will focus on writing short prose and poetry.
No repeats! Each session will offer distinct writing prompts, methods, and exercises.
We are grateful to the St. John's United Methodist Church (1207 Peabody Ave.) for generously providing space for us.

Mrs. Dobbins-Combs, founder of River City Scribes, hopes to be a literary activist her whole life and inspire you to be one, too. She sees writing as a way to challenge perceptions and foster community based on the earnest, hard, and often incomplete labor of translating feelings and thoughts onto the page. Oftentimes, the path to true expression is paved with images and figurative language—not 100% clear, but, perhaps complete clarity is too lofty a goal in human communication. Mrs. Dobbins-Combs holds a Master's of Fine Arts from Bennington Writing Seminars.
