October 2 Session. Participants select photos of Bowling Green and Wood County from the Weldon Dukes collection for inspiration, and explore finding oneshelf or a character within one of these local places. Preview the Dukes photos here. Thanks to the New York Public Library for the writing theme.
November 6 Session. Participants create an encyclopedia entry for a person, such as one of your characters. Find inspiration by visiting encyclopedia entries using the Ohio Web Library, or drop by the library to look at one of our biographical dictionaries to see what makes an interesting entry. Thanks to The 4 A.M. Breakthrough by Brian Kiteley for the writing prompt.
December 7 Session. Participants take inspiration from memorable food prepared by amateurs (not by a restaurant). You can even include fragments of recipes if you wish. Thanks again to The 4 A. M. Breakthrough by Brian Kiteley for the writing prompt.
