Free writing workshop Dec. 9

Nov 30, 2012

Camden — The Camden Public Library will host a free writer’s workshop led by Teresa Piccari Sunday, Dec. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m. The workshop will be based on the elements of “The Hero’s Journey,” as conceived by the late scholar Joseph Campbell and enriched by mythic tradition.

Writing coach and instructor Piccari will detail how “The Hero’s Journey” provides a reliable and creative structure for storytelling. Discussion will be encouraged, and there will be in-session writing exercises designed to demonstrate the value of applying “The Hero’s Journey” to one’s creative work.

Piccari, proprietor of The Village Scribe at The Wellness Center in Camden, teaches creative writing, books/project, memoir/personal essay and creative process workshops. She also provides creative coaching, for all art forms, on an individual basis. In October, she celebrated her seventh anniversary of living in Maine.

“It has been quite a journey for me in this new culture! As part of this, I have a desire to give back to both the Camden Library and the community, doing what it is I do as my personal way of saying ‘thank you’ to Camden,” she said.

Space is limited; call 235-3440 to register.
