One of Grayson’s favorite authors, Carole Townsend, is looking to bring her hugely successful series of writing classes to Grayson this fall. Townsend will partner with the Grayson Arts & History Center to host each class, and the city is excited to bring this informative series of writing workshops to the community.
“I would recommend this workshop to anyone who ever even thought they might have what it takes to become a published writer,” says Camille Burch, one of Townsend’s former students. “The class opens up a new world of possibilities in blogging, article writing, ghost writing, fiction and non-fiction short story or book formats, and a host of other ideas for anyone looking to put their God-given talent to work.”
Class sizes are limited for more personal interaction. If you are interested, you can find out more by contacting Townsend at Info@caroletownsend.com
