Rekindle your love for writing! From exploring out-of-the-box writing techniques, to learning the power of dialogue, scene, and the art of editing, this class will help beginning and more seasoned writers polish their craft. While the focus will largely be on the short story form--novel, memoir, and genre writers will also find this class informative and enjoyable. Learning from modern and classic masters and using thought-provoking prompts, each student will work to produce a new story or more skillfully edit a work in progress. The final two weeks of class will be conducted as a supportive but challenging workshop where students may (if they choose) have their work read and examined by peers.
