Six-Week Creative Writing Workshop— Beginners
Don’t just say you want to write; do it! In this Beginner’s Creative Writing Workshop,
participants will explore their own writing as text. You will write journals, short stories,
and memoirs, while reading and discussing established works. Exercises completed in
and outside of the workshop will focus on molding a creative idea into an actual piece of
writing. Goals: loosening up, generating new material to shape, and finding your voice.
All sessions will involve discussion, a group exercise, and hands-on experience—this
will not be a teacher dominated environment. There may be impromptu discussions on
writing styles and techniques, as well as the distribution of unscheduled articles relating
to writing, revision, and editing. The instructor will assign readings from established
fiction to be discussed during each class.
