Fiction Writing, Living a More Creative Life and Microsoft Outlook are part of the new spring line-up of evening and weekend courses offered by the Continuing Studies Program at Southampton College of Long Island University.

"Introduction to Fiction Writing" will take place in a workshop setting and focus primarily on short fiction, plot, theme, characterization and point of view. "Living a More Creative Life" will encourage participants to develop a more conscious connection to their thoughts, words and actions and help to find a practical approach to using creativity as a way of life. "Microsoft Outlook" will help students learn how to use the program to organize their lives.

Continuing Studies offers courses in real estate, English as a second language, writing, foreign languages, health and legal professions, insurance, computers, horticulture and much more, allowing adults the opportunity to seek personal enrichment, professional advancement or new career challenges.

The Southampton Lecture Series offered by Continuing Studies this spring will feature "The Contemporary World Novel: Reading New Work" with Southampton College Professor Robert Hullot Kentor, and "Mysterious Long Island," which will uncover four of the most fascinating mysteries on Long Island including Captain Kidd's long-lost treasure, ghost tales, shipwrecks and the Nazi invasion of Amagansett.
