Fridays, November 2 - 16, and November 30, 2 - 4 pm:  Join us for a creative writing workshop for seniors, led by Marianna Randazzo, designed to express thoughts and feelings about nature through language. Seniors will try several different creative writing styles, including field and reflective journaling, poetry and story writing, and writing from a specific perspective.

Draft-writing will be conducted outdoors on the grounds of the Greenbelt Nature Center (weather-permitting); at the conclusion of the class, students will have the opportunity to create a final copy of their favorite piece of writing from the session and present it to their fellow participants.

Registration is free but required as space is limited:  Contact us via email at: or by phone; 718-351-3450

This event is funded, in part, by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
