CROTON FALLS, N.Y. - As you go through life, chances are you think back to your mother, your sister, grandmother, aunt or your own self, and you probably wonder about events and relationships. Here is a chance to explore the past and perhaps find some answers through creative writing.
Mary E. Horgan, teacher of creative writing whose specialty has become the use of memory to interpret relationships, will offer a six-week course for women at the Schoolhouse Theater beginning on May 9.
Participants will read excerpts from novels and memoirs, short stories, poems and personal essays written from a womans point of view. Reactions will be discussed in class and in written assignments, culminating with a creative narrative of ones own.
Horgan, who holds a master's degree in fine arts from Goddard College, has received multiple grants including a stint at the Norman Mailer Writers Colony in Provincetown, Mass., and a term as writer-in-residence at the Anam Cara Artists and Writers Retreat in County Cork, Ireland. She has taught womens studies and memoir writing at Marymount College and currently teaches writing at Pace University and the Bronx High School for Visual Arts.
The class will meet from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on consecutive Wednesdays from May 9 through June 13 at the Schoolhouse Theater, 3 Owens Road, Croton Falls. The fee is $240. For more information or to register, call Mary Horgan (914) 674-0621.
