For Immediate Release

The College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is offering a series of writing classes to be held in UH Hilo’s University Classroom Building (UCB) Room 104 this fall.

Creating Your Life Story: From Memory to Memoir will guide students through a structured process to produce weekly works of writing. Instructor Sally K. O’Brien has taught extensively at the high school and college level, and has several years of experience teaching memoir writing. Classes will be held Tuesdays, September 6 through October 25, from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. Tuition is $80.

Adam Sydney, a novelist and screenplay evaluator who has taught writing and storytelling classes for nearly eight years, will teach two unique writing classes. Tuition is $65 for each class, or $110 for both.

Storytelling runs on Thursdays, September 8 through October 6, from 5-7 p.m.
The course focuses on the building blocks of narrative medium and will provide participants with essential skills to help them excel in areas like writing novels and screenplays, advertising and journalism.

Writing from the Subconscious provides a new approach for seasoned writers or individuals just beginning to explore creative writing by offering strategies to help participants silence the inner critic, become more creative, and surprise themselves with compelling work that isn't like anything else out there. Classes will be held on Thursdays, October 13 through November 10, from 5-7 p.m.
