"Writing your Way Forward" offered at Cook County Higher Ed

Are you looking to improve your writing and communication skills?  Would you like to learn to write more clearly and effectively for work or school?

If so, Writing Your Way Forward is the class for you.  The course consists of four two-hour sessions on Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m. at the North Shore Campus beginning Oct. 15.

Four sessions will focus on organizing information for coherence and unity, expressing ideas clearly and effectively, proofreading and revising for content, and how to conduct research and analyze source material.  This writing series has been developed to help participants in their workplace or place of business, students, grant writers, and those looking to renew or revitalize their writing and communication skills.

Instructor Erin Altemus has an MFA in creative writing from the University of Minnesota. She has taught creative writing and freshman composition classes for eight years at the U of MN and UW-Stout.  She most enjoys writing essays and memoirs about food, farming, animals and the outdoors.

The fee for this four-week class is $40 and is supported by a generous grant from Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.  Scholarships are available.
