The Taproot Workshop of Southampton began meeting for its Spring 2008 session on March 6 at St. John’s Episcopal Church on South Main Street in Southampton.
The class is open to men and women ages 55 and up. All writing levels are welcome. Working together in small groups to learn and practice the craft of writing, the class will focus on memoir and poetry writing.
Taproot will meet each Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. for 10 consecutive sessions.
A non-profit organization, Taproot has been holding its professionally led workshops on Long Island and in Connecticut for more than 30 years. At the end of each year, a journal of student writing is published.
The total fee for the 10 sessions is $70. Anyone interested in joining the remaining sessions can either walk in or contact Elena Loreto, workshop leader, for more information at 725-3304.
