Creative Writing Class


Sep 20, 2018 to Dec 13, 2018
02:30 PM until 04:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Thursday.


Hudson Area Library and the City of Hudson Senior Center is offering an extended 12-weeks of Creative Writing, on Thursdays, September 20 - December 13, from 2:30 - 4pm. This series is made possible in part by funds from mid-Hudson Library System.


This class will be taught by author, artist, educator, and social activist Maureen McNeil. Maureen has created writing programs for NYC public school students, US prisoners, seniors, veterans, and families of 9/11 victims. She believes that everyone’s story is needed to help solve the problems of the world. Maureen is also author of Dear Red: The Lost Diary of Marilyn Monroe and Red Hook Stories.


The class will focus on discovering the power of the inner self through the practice of daily writing. Students will explore memories, sensory observation, dreams, autobiography, fiction, and poetry and will share a selection of their work. All levels of writers are welcome. A zine of student work will be available at the library and on the library’s website. A final celebration of student writing will be held in the library on December 13.  


The class is free and open to the public and is wheelchair accessible. Registration is limited, and is on a first come/first serve basis. To register, please visit the front desk at the Hudson Area Library, call 518.828.1792 x101, or email
