Beer under glass


The North Austin Branch Library, 5724 W. North Ave., will host fiction writing learning circle at 4 p.m. from Wednesday, May 24 until July 12. This is an online course, but unlike other online classes, we will work together as a group, learning how to write fiction. We’ll focus on a skill which is central to the writing of all stories and novels – creating characters. This is an 8-week course. Registration is required.
