For those interested in learning how to become a writer, Piedmont Technical College has the class for you. And the college is turning to a published author to teach it.
David Moody, who recently released his second novel, The Good Reverend, will be conducting two classes this fall –creative writing for beginners and beginner poetry.
“It doesn’t matter what people are trying to write, whether it’s a children’s book, fiction, non-fiction, the process is still the same,” Moody said. “I’m trying to get people to relax and be comfortable with what they are doing.”
The focus of the class will be to introduce students to the use of voice, different presentation techniques, character development, plot lines and story ideas.
“It’s going to be all about how you do it, but first we will look at why you’re writing,” said Moody. “If you figure out the why, then the how gets much easier.”
The creative writing class will be held every Tuesday in October beginning October 2. The poetry class will held every Thursday in October beginning October 4. Both classes will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Greenwood campus. For more information or to register for classes, contact Continuing Education at (864) 941-8400 or go to www.ptc.edu/coned.
