Writing Workshop and Book Study

Join other reader-writers as they sample, create, discuss, and share writing practice prompts, literacy lore, inspiration, encouragement, and useful information.
This workshop is facilitated by June Jefferson, an Arkansas LifeWriting Workshop leader since 1996.

The group is currently working with the book Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

"In Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life, Amy Krouse Rosenthal has ingeniously adapted the centuries-old format of the encyclopedia to convey the accumulated knowledge of her lifetime in a poignant, wise, often funny, fully realized memoir. Using mostly short entries organized from A to Z, many of which are cross-referenced, Rosenthal captures in wonderful and episodic detail the moments, observations, and emotions that comprise a contemporary life. Start anywhere--preferably at the beginning--and see how one young woman's alphabetized existence can open up and define the world in new and unexpected ways.
An ordinary life, perhaps, but an extraordinary book.
