A class for writers soon at the Art Academy of Milton | News

MILTON — Do you think you have a talent for writing? If so, you might want to consider joining the Milton Academy of Art Prose Writing Workshop.

Classes will take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings, from February 21 to March 30, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The cost of the workshop is $120.

Michael Rash, adjunct professor at Susquehanna University, will be the instructor for all 12 courses. He said, “Nobody needs to be experienced for that. It’s a good opportunity for people to get together and share their stuff.

Rash’s instruction will include lessons in dialogue, character development, plot and storytelling, and editing.

Since teaching film studies, writing, grammar and public speaking, Rash strongly believes that students should have the opportunity to share their individual prose works with others, so that the group works together to review the work that has been produced.

“I would like them to have, at the end of this one (the workshop), about three original pieces.”

Rash expects the “specialist” workshop to be small: “around 5-10 people”. He doesn’t do it for academic reasons, but to give people in the community an opportunity. Giving to people who love to write, but don’t have many opportunities to work at the college level, is one of the reasons for offering this workshop.

He has already led poetry and fiction workshops, “but never anything as unique as this one. This is an opportunity for me to give back to the community.

Rash thought it would be fun to share ideas about process, dialogue, and editing in the form of workshops outside of university life.

Keith Gibson, owner of the Art Academy of Milton, liked the idea and gave Rash the green light. Rash is renting a space to do the workshop, he says, and hopes he will have enough students to “break even.”

According to Rash, “It should be a lot of fun and educational.”

Workshop participants must be at least 15 years old. Rash mentioned that it would be beneficial to enroll younger and older people, “so the experiences can be passed on to each other.”
