Fairview Recreation Complex is proud to offer the roleplaying game Dungeons and Dragons. The structure to the stories brings new ways to determine the consequences of the adventurers’ actions. Players roll dice to determine whether their attacks hit or miss and whether their characters can scale a cliff, roll away from the strike of a magical lightning bolt, or pull off some other dangerous task.  Anything is possible, but the dice make some things more probable than others.  Dice will be provided.

Writing is fun! But sometimes it’s difficult to know where and how to begin. This workshop focuses on one sure fire starter: using visuals as a prompt, which is known as Ekphrastic writing. Beginning with a favorite photograph or work of art, we will develop short stories or poems in response to your chosen visual. Come prepared to learn, to write, to share, and to listen to others! If you have a favorite photo, or picture of a painting or sculpture, bring that along, but if not, examples will be there to help you get started. Other required materials: paper / pen or laptop.

For more information, please contact Evan Smith at Evan.Smith@williamsoncounty-tn.gov
