Writer's Workshop for 50 Plus begins Jan. 7

Don't miss an opportunity to express yourself in writing being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

The program is called the Writer's Workshop and will give participants a chance to get creative with short stories, poetry, and essays. Writers will get new ideas each week while enjoying feedback from the instructor and their peers in a supportive, no-pressure environment. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under hobbies &special interests. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “writing.”

This program will meet at 1:30 p.m. Monday beginning Jan. 7 at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty, Overland Park. The cost for eight 90-minute sessions is $59 per person for Johnson County residents or $65 per person for nonresidents. Class will not meet on Jan. 21

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.

The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com
