Creative Writing Workshop: Memoir, Fiction, Poetry

Thursday Aug 31, 2017, 4 p.m. 6 p.m.

Thursdays, 4-6 p.m., July 13 - August 31.

Lisa Rhodes-Ryabchich will teach a memoir, fiction, and poetry writing workshop in the conference room of the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library (located at 25 Flywheel Park West, Piermont, NY) this summer.

The first hour will be about the craft of memoir, fiction and poetry. We will look at a variety of literature, and poetry and analyze how it works to create an interesting piece of writing. The nuts and bolts of each genre will be explored. Then we will spend the 2nd hour writing with prompts and critique informally each person’s in-class writing by providing constructive ideas to improve their writing. There will be only positive feedback and each student should bring a notebook.

No experience is required and all are welcome.
Registration is free. Sign up at the front desk or call 845-359-4595.

About the instructor:
Lisa Rhodes-Ryabchich has an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College and was a creative writing instructor at Westchester Community College and was an Adjunct Professor of English at Ramapo College in Mahwah, N.J.

First Friday Film Series presents: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Friday Sep 1, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum contains Buster Keaton’s last appearance on film. This 1966 full color musical comedy also just barely contains Zero Mostel, in perhaps his most manic performance on film.

Mostel plays Pseudolus, not just a slave, “the lyingest, cheatingest, sloppiest slave in all of Rome”. Pseudolos’ master falls in love with the neighbor’s daughter, getting Phil Silvers’ character (the buyer and seller of beautiful women next door), involved. Of course, other suitors have their eyes on our fair Philia as well. Heroes, virgins, slaves, Romans, Countrymen, this hilarious farce has it all. A lightweight blast from the past will capstone the summer. We’re viewing it Friday, September 1, 7:30 at the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library. It’s FREE!

~Film Series Curator, Chris X. Carroll
