What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

In this eight-week workshop, beginning and intermediate writers will have the chance to explore three different genres: memoir writing, short fiction, and poetry. 

Each week participants will be given a writing assignment and several readings, to be followed by a critique of each student’s assignment. During our eight-weeks, participants will learn about voice, point of view, dialogue, description, imagery, and sound. 

By the end of this workshop, participants will have written one personal memoir, one short-short story, and three original poems, and have developed a greater understanding of their own writing interests.
