I miss writing

March 24th, 2009 § 1 comment

I wake up every morning to emails from Daily Candy, one from Philly, one from NYC, and one from DC. I usually glance over the Philly and NYC ones because all that info is local to the respective cities and often the deals aren’t good enough for me to venture up there. The Daily Candy for DC on the other hand tends to have interesting things I’ve never heard about. The Capitol Letters Writing Center. Happens to be one of those things I never heard about. Once long long ago when I was still living in Richmond and unsure of what direction to take in life I toyed with the idea of pursuing a creative writing career. I’m a horrible story teller when it comes to the spoken word but I found when I let my imagination go on paper it was a whole different story (see what I did there?) There’s something compelling about volunteering for this center. I still have most of my notes from my creative writing class (I wish I could remember my teacher’s name, she was quite successful in getting our creative juices flowing) and hope that I can share some of what I barely remember to kids who are thinking of venturing into creative writing.

The way I see it, this is another way to capture a specific moment in time on paper.

    thanks for posting this link! i didn’t know there was such a place and i love that i know about it now. very useful for me, as i have been looking for a better way to get students excited about writing. attending a workshop here would be the perfect introductory activity for next school year.

    also, i’m definitely going to volunteer here.

    too perfect.
