Writing a Road Less Traveled NEW (S23-26)

Class has been canceled will be offered in the Fall of 2023

Wednesdays, April 5 - May 10, 2023 | 12:45 PM - 02:05 PM [VIA ZOOM]

The Road Less Traveled (RLT) is a feature article appearing in Around Kent magazine.  Eighteen have been written in the last 6 years.  The RLT chronicles the path successful people have taken to become successful. They include the zigs and zags, starts and restarts and other twists and turns people take along their lives. They resemble a biography and are informative and insightful.  Readers often comment they enjoy reading them because they can picture themselves in the story.  That’s because everyone has a RLT.

This course reviews the process the author uses to write a RLT.  The 18 archived features will be used as examples throughout the course.  Participants are guided through the process and can write a RLT as part of the course. They can write their own personal RLT (autobiography) or that of a family or friend (biography). After they learn the process, they can write as many as they wish.  The course facilitator will write a RLT along with the participants.

These make wonderful gifts to family and friends as they are like writing family history. “The Last Dreamer”, page 36, is an excellent example of this.
