Home /  Courses And Programs / Finding Our Voices, Telling Our Stories

Within you there dwells an innate sense of storytelling and a unique voice with which to tell your stories. In this course you will explore writing techniques to help you locate and refine the "natural music" of your own voice. You will also experiment with various writing genres that make good story vehicles: personal narrative, fiction, memoir, creative nonfiction, monologue, and poetry. Through in-class exercises you will learn how to unearth the stories that want to be told, how to go beyond the facts to the truth, and how to turn real life into fiction. Later sessions include read and critique. Expect to fill pages and pages in your writer's notebook with poetic uprisings, story seedlings, character sketches, monologues and dialogues, and the frames and foundations for personal narratives.
