Excuse our dust!

The Newberry is undergoing an extensive first floor renovation in 2018. This project will be ongoing during the Summer 2018 seminar term. The Adult Education Seminars Program still has use of the basement classrooms, but please check this link frequently for the latest conditions - which exterior doors are open or closed, where to find an accessible entrance, which restrooms are available, etc.

Because of the renovation, the Newberry Bookstore will be closed during the Summer 2018 term. As such, seminar participants will be responsible for acquiring all required texts for their seminars on their own. We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience, and appreciate your understanding. We have put together a list of helpful resources that should make it easy to find the books you need.

Seminar Description

Mark Twain said, “I like a good story well told. That’s the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself.” In this creative writing workshop, we will advance our writing skills through thoughtful analysis of plot, structure, character, and voice. But we will also concentrate on growing your work and overcoming obstacles in a supportive and lively environment. Bring your work, and get ready to write! Three sessions.

Colleen Delegan is a member of the Writer’s Guild of America West, an award winning screenwriter, author, television writer, and ghostwriter. She currently lives in London and is working on several projects in the European Union.
