Creative writing begins when the spark of an idea ignites the fuel of language. The writer picks up pen or presses fingers to keyboard and transforms the idea into a story or any of a dozen other shapes. For those who would travel the road of creative writing, this class offers a map for the journey. Through lively discussion, examples, in-class exercises, and assignments, participants learn the how and where of finding ideas, the elements of style, voice, and dramatic structure, and finally, rewriting, editing, and submitting the work for publication. Material produced through exercises and assignments will be workshopped in read and critique sessions. This class is an excellent opportunity for writers of all genres to discover and practice the art and craft of good writing.
