Join us in gearing up for Write On, Oceanside! by participating in this year’s writing contest. In 500 words of prose or poetry share your story of “Picture This in OceansideGet creative, and personal, whimsical, or solemn and share with the community what a photograph taken by you somewhere in Oceanside means to you.                                                                        

Two workshops, September 9 and 16, 10:30-Noon at the Mission Branch Library are planned to help stir and refine creative energy. In the first workshop on September 9, published author and retired college creative writing instructor Leslie Clark will give tips to participants about how to gather their thoughts and create interesting details in writing about their photographs for the contest.  Then we'll do some pre-writing and writing.  In the second workshop on September 16, participants will share their drafts of contest writing with the group, and receive feedback and suggestions for improvement. Teen and adult writers are welcome in the workshops.
