Inprint course sign-up For all of you with a manuscript in your attic, a stack of poems in your desk drawer or just a desire to try writing because you've always wanted to, here's the nudge you've been waiting for. Inprint, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the literary arts, is offering four writers' workshops. You can study story-writing, poetry, the personal essay or something as erudite as Fiction, Politics and the Latino Aesthetic if you're so inclined. The classes are small -- no more than 12 students. And best of all, no grades! All workshops held at Inprint House, 1524 Sul Ross, 521-2026. $275 per ten-week course.

Fine gardening in the South When you consider horticulture, Disney World probably doesn't spring to mind. But if you really think about it, theme parks -- especially Disney theme parks -- are some of the most attentively manicured grounds in the world. Katy Moss Warner, the head honcho of horticulture at Disney World, speaks to the Garden Club of Houston. And with all those gargantuan gardens to tend, she probably has a lot to say. 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Houston Museum of Natural Science, 1 Hermann Circle Drive in Hermann Park. For information, call 626-7908. Free.
