ClassFirst Steps into Writing
This is a class for those who are new to creative writing or who feel rusty or just plain shy about claiming the identity of writer. The class will invite and encourage you to explore your stories, take those first tentative steps, then increase and strengthen your stride as a storyteller. Writing exercises in and out of class will help you discover your voice in journaling, poetry, memoir, and/or short fiction.
Expect to generate lots of material and have time to read your work in class and get immediate feedback (optional). Please obtain a copy of Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and come with a journal and pen or laptop and ready to write!
Class will take place online, via Zoom, with live weekly meetings, including ample time for “in-class” writing exercises and weekly writing assignments to do between sessions.
