The Lafayette Writers’ Studio was founded by Melissa Fraterrigo “to create a comfortable, nurturing environment in our community where writers of all levels could go to hone their craft, find support, and improve their work.” Thursday will begin the 2018 series of classes starting with “New Year, New Writing: Goal-Setting and Submission Gathering” at Matchbox Coworking Studio. WBAA’s John Clare spoke to Fraterrigo about creativity, writing, and who should attend.
