Chloe Yelena MillerPlease join writer and writing teacher Chloe Yelena Miller for a memoir writing workshop on Sunday, March 9, 2–4 p.m.

In the workshop, Ms. Miller will teach you how to craft a scene. Since each scene should have a location, characters and plot, scenes will help you to build your memoir. You will focus on avoiding summary and, instead, placing the reader in a particular moment. There will be some in-class writing in response to prompts. You will have a chance to discuss your work and, if applicable, larger projects. Please bring pens and paper, or a charged laptop.

Cover for Monster on the Hill The monster of Stoker-on-Avon is a bit of a disappointment. He never attacks, never knocks down buildings and he hides in his cave far away from town. What’s a medieval town to do without a decent monster to give them a proper scare?

So the town devises a plan and recruits man of Science, Charles Wilkie to “fix” the monster. But when the monster and Charles leave town to help the monster become more terrifying, a worse fate befalls the town … another monster, one that leaves only destruction and despair in its wake.
