ClassLet’s Get Writing! Introduction to Creative Writing
Do you want to write? Maybe you secretly write under the cover of night. Are you stuck and need some new ideas? This class is for you.
Our goal will be to explore the world with a writer’s eye. Each week we will read short selections that demonstrate creative writing craft elements, generate a class discussion with some guiding questions and then we’re going to start putting words on the page and listening for our own voice. You’ll be astonished by the possibilities of your own imagination. There will be opportunities for workshopping writing and some feedback from the teaching artist.
By the time this class finishes, you will have a collection of writing prompts you can use over and over to generate content and have fun with your imagination. You will maybe have a start on a story or even an idea for a novel. Most of all, you’ll get your feet wet—or back in the pool—and have fun putting words on the page and playing with the possibilities of your own creative writing practice
