The Hill Center Opening

The Hill Center Opening

Here's a report on the Hill Center opening two weekends ago by Gimbiya Kettering, our 2011 Undiscovered Voices Scholar:

The Writer’s Center had a display table at the open house for the opening of the Hill Center at the Old Naval Hopsital at 921 Pennsylvania Ave SE. From the hundreds of people from Capitol Hill and around the city who attended the opening, it is obvious that many are excited about the opportunity for continuing education and classes for adults on Capitol Hill. The Writer’s Center is one of about 25 program partners who participated in the “Salute to Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital” on Saturday, November 19th. For more information about the Hill Center, please visit their website.

Stewart Moss, the Executive Director of the Writer’s Center, is excited to at the opportunity to extend writing classes new a new part of the city. He talked with visitors about upcoming classes at the Hill center including classes about poetry, blogging, and fiction character development. For a complete list of upcoming classes, click here.
