What do you think of when you picture Ray Bradbury writing? We often think of our favorite writers as having natural talent, writing to the muse in a creative bubble.

But what if we told you that writing is not natural; it is hard labor that occurs for each of us in our own process, even Bradbury.

In honor of National Novel Writing Month, the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies and the University Writing Center in the School of Liberal Arts are teaming up to bring you two free workshops designed to deconstruct the way we think about writing.

Join as the centers chat about Bradbury’s writings and writing process alongside your own. It doesn’t matter if you’re writing a novel, a blog post, an academic paper or anything else. Everyone is a writer, and all writers need readers.

The first workshop, “Telling Your Story: An Exploration Into the Finer Workings of Memoir Writing,“ is scheduled for 2:30 to 4 p.m. Nov. 17 on Zoom.

The second workshop, “How Many Drafts Did Ray Bradbury Write? An Exploration of the Writing Process,” is set for 2:30 to 4 p.m. Nov. 18 on Zoom.
