Play! Invent the world! Invent reality! –Nabakov

Develop your unique ideas and discover new approaches to creative writing.

Together we’ll explore what makes a compelling story, essay or poem through stimulating examples and playful writing exercises.

The goal for this class is to adopt a fun, experimental attitude toward writing while practicing key techniques. Whether you’re starting as a writer or recharging your current practice, this class can help you produce fresh work in your genre of choice.

Students will need a spiral-bound notebook for journaling and writing exercises. Instructor will provide hand-outs with writing samples and exercises.

This class is a great fit for anyone who wants to collaborate with fellow writers, try new, interactive methods for generating ideas, and further develop a distinctive writing voice. Students will finish the class with a selection of new work and will choose one piece to revise for a final project.
