Norwalk, CT - Challenge your imagination in a new six-week creative writing program at Norwalk Public Library, led by author and writing teacher Kim Kovach. Inspiration for this series will be the murals and paintings created by Connecticut artists as part of the Federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) program in the 1920s. Sessions will meet Mondays, September 16, 23 and October 7, 14, 21, and 28, from 11:30 - 1 p.m. Sign-up today for this fun, creative writing experience.

WPA works of art were displayed across Connecticut in libraries, schools, hospitals and other public spaces. New and experienced writers will be inspired by these forgotten paintings to write short stories, personal essays or poetry. Learn about the Connecticut artists and their WPA works of arts created during hard times in this six-week adult writing program.

Kim Kovach teaches fiction writing and creative nonfiction writing for adults. The author of six fiction books, Kim writes a weekly column for Halston Media newspapers, as well as lifestyle articles for Westchester Wellness and Westchester Senior Voice. As a writing coach, Kim provides guidance for adults starting a novel or memoir and moving the manuscript forward. For more information, visit her website at www.kimkovachwrites.com

Registration is required for this program. To register, please contact Cynde Bloom Lahey, Director of Library Information Services, at (203) 899-2780 ext. 15133, or clahey@norwalkpl.org.
