Creative writing, is a course led by Arleen Mariotti, will focus on fiction and creative nonfiction, although all genres are welcome. No previous writing experience is required. We will concentrate on developing an understanding of the essential components of creative writing such as setting, conflict, plot, characters and dialogue. The course will be organized as a process workshop so there will be sharing, discussion, revision of your work and friendly peer critiques.

The three sections of the book take place between 1910 and 1920 and revolve around various members of the Ramsay family and their guests during visits to their summer residence on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. "The Window": young James Ramsay fervently hopes to visit the lighthouse on the following day, but while his mother assures him, his father insists they will have to call off the trip due to weather. Various guests and colleagues interact with one another as Mrs. Ramsay attempts to placate all. The story progresses through shifting points of view. "Time Passes": an omniscient narrator takes over to inform us about the war and the fates of some of the characters from the first section. "The Lighthouse": Mr. Ramsay returns to the family's deserted summer home 10 years after the book's initial events. He and two of his children decide to sail out to visit the lighthouse. While they are gone, Lily Brisco, one of the previous guests, finishes an uncompleted painting.
