Course Description:  

Writers need to diversify these days. Creative writing must keep leaping genre lines, in its search for new sources of energy and inspiration. Certain skills are generally useful whether your interest lies in poetry, journal writing, plays, novels with plot, character and dialogue, or imaginative personal essays. As we explore what it means to work as a poet, a novelist, a writer of short stories or creative non-fiction, you may well discover talents you never knew you had.

The exercises and writing practice we do in this workshop, and the constructive feedback you will receive, will make you a better, more creative writer, no matter what kind of writing you do.
