Open Books Free Writing Workshops

The good people over at Open Books have cooked up another great offering for adults in the Chicago community. February 3 - March 5, free writing workshops will be held every Tuesday and Thursday and will cover all manner of topics. Tuesdays will focus on creative writing and Thursdays will focus on career-related writing (think resumes and job applications) with Open Books volunteers serving as writing coaches. It's bound be a good time to get some free advice on how to improve your writing skills without the committment and cost of joining a formal class. The workshops will be located at Mitchell Elementary School at 2233 W. Ohio. Email info[at]open-books[dot]org for more information.
