In this generative creative writing class we will dive into the most essential elements of fiction: plot, character development, dialogue, and sentences. Students will leave this class with a greater understanding of how fiction works and how to strengthen their own creative writing projects.
Each class, students will be provided with exercises to practice new techniques to incorporate into their own writing. Our in-class writing prompts will give students the chance to produce exciting new work every week. And there will be time reserved each class for sharing work and receiving feedback.
Whether you are at work on a novel, a writer of short stories, or someone who just wants to make more time for writing in your life, this class will leave you feeling creatively inspired and motivated.
