Course Description

Turn your lived experiences into inspired and share-worthy pieces of creative writing. Through experiments with form, discussion of readings, workshop opportunities, and writer’s-block-busting prompts, students will grow their creative writing toolkit and develop the confidence to create imaginative, powerful, and engaging writing that takes its origins in lived experience. All students will leave the course with at least one completed piece of writing that has been edited, revised and is ready for a larger audience of readers. While this course best suits new and beginning writers, the only fundamental requirement is to come as you are, ready to play, take risks, be bold, tell stories, get inspired, discover, and create. At the end of the course, students will receive instructions and resources on how and where they might publish or otherwise showcase their work.
