Event Types :
Join us in person for “Short Story Writing” on Thursday, June 23 at 1 PM in the Community Conference Center.

Do you have an itch to write but need encouragement? Or don’t know where your story begins? In this free, in-person program, Central Florida Community Arts Teaching Artist Chris Hicks will empower you to capture your imagination and put it down on paper. Using a series of writing and creative short story techniques, Hicks will lead you on a journey of self-discovery. At the end of the class, you’ll leave with new friendships and an original, creative work of art (as time permits).

By participating in this program, you can expect to:

  • learn the roadmap to creating a short story to utilize in future works.
  • create your own original work during this session.
  • connect with other creative writers.

Special Instructions: Participants are encouraged to bring paper and a writing utensil to this program.

This program is presented by Chris Hicks and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with CFCArts.
