Sunshine Place together with Prof. Oscar Peñaranda , instructor of Sunshine Place’s most attended and well-loved Memoir workshops at Sunshine Place , will be launching a new creative writing workshop . Building from story-telling skills honed in Level 1 and 2 Memoir Writing Workshops and Pre-Conference Writing Workshop, participants will discover the line between memoir and story is very thin.

Writing short stories is a great way to exercise your story-telling skills. In this face-to-face workshop, you will learn about the elements of a story and ways to interpret them. You will understand how to read stories as you are writing them, and write them as you are reading.

Through this latest Short Story Writing Face to Face Workshop at Sunshine Place: Senior Recreation Center, students will have a chance to learn about literary techniques for crafting interesting and captivating stories that will engage readers.
