As a blogger I’ve learned a thing or two about…something writing related.  You see, I’m not a creative writer so much as an ironic one.  And that’s why I’m going to cut and paste this flier, which is making the rounds, from our new friend Ryan Miller who wants to help you help yourself:

I’m teaching a 7-week course for fiction and creative non-fiction writers (sorry, poets)  The idea is to provide a supportive and productive environment for writers to share their work and connect with others who are engaged in/struggling with the creative process. I hope to have more laughing than crying (though crying isn’t all bad) and to rouse some energy and motivation within the St. Louis writing community (Could such a thing exist?).

Time: Wednesdays, 7:30 to 9:30
Dates: April 9th to May 21st
Fee: $40 (no books to purchase—readings will be sent by email)
Location: The Gathering United Methodist Church* at 2105 McCausland Avenue in Maplewood

Ryan wants to promise us the class is strictly non-denominational, so we’re pretty sure that makes it Lent-friendly in this town.  If you’re looking to join a group of around 10 other local writers looking to hone their craft, this could be your kind of gig. And if you’re looking for a little more creativity (besides going meta), could you tell me when you find anything?
