CNCC seeks memoir instructor


Colorado Northwestern Community College is looking for someone to lead its memoir writing class and is hosting a meeting next week for anyone interested.

The late Carol Jacobson, a local writer, owner of Downtown Books and a "beloved CNCC instructor" founded the writing course, according to a CNCC news release.

The class is an eight-week session, and it takes place at American Legion Post 62, 1055 Moffat County Road 62. It is scheduled to resume Nov. 11 and run through Dec. 30.

Jacobson died July 29 after her boat overturned while rafting in Dinosaur National Monument. She was 54.

"Students have voiced desire for this class to continue and qualified instructors have also expressed their support," CNCC reported in the release. "Unfortunately, many potential instructors for the class have commitments that prevent them from instructing full-time.

"Sue Beachman, an experienced teacher and writer, will be able to lead the class January through May 2010, but we need your input on the November through December 2009 session and how to keep this meaningful class going throughout the year."

The meeting, open to all students and community members interested in either taking the class or potentially instructing it, is scheduled from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Oct. 14 at the American Legion.

Students will be able to register for the class during the meeting.

For more information, call Mary Morris, CNCC director of community education at the Craig campus, at 824-1135.
