Looking for some motivation to finish reading that classic title you’ve wanted to check off your list? Here is your chance! Muse is a local resource for people who read, write, or would like to talk about reading and writing, based in the eastside foothills of Los Angeles. Led by an award-winning, former university teacher, scholar, and poet, Muse introduces community members to the world’s greatest literature in small groups that meet every week for six-to-eight-week blocks to discuss and reflect on one masterwork at a time. These courses are organized much like a college seminar, but without any onerous papers to write or tests to take. Just come and enjoy the experience of immersing yourself in a single great text with other like-minded folks. Whether you’re looking to jump-start your brain, check off titles from a Great Books List, or share in the pleasure of ideas and words with a group, sign up for a course and find out what everyone’s talking about!
Muse also offers private consulting services for writers who may want to work on a writing project of their own or who may be in need of expert editing.The Muse at the Mic—a free, monthly reading series in Monrovia, California—will bring the talents of a diverse array of poets and writers directly to the community.
