Jobe’s Writing Workshops Return!

Due to changes in CALS’ adult programming, I’m not able to continue offering my free quarterly writing workshops through the library anymore. The unsinkable Sarah Shera and I were heartbroken, but never fear! My awesome friend Chelle Moore has just opened her very own art supply store in Conway and we’re going to pick up MONTHLY classes there! I am so excited to share with you our schedule for the rest of the year.
