WRITING: CREATIVE WRITING

Students will learn the basic elements of fiction writing by creating unforgettable scenes, memorable characters, and realistic dialogue. You will write stories from different points of view and discover how journaling will inspire you and your characters. The workshop consists of lecture, in-class exercises, and short story assignments. By the end of the workshop, you will have several completed stories.

THIS IS AN ON-LINE CLASS. You will need access to a computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone for video conferencing. If you prefer, you can also use a home phone and have access to classes with audio only. All classes will be recorded and available to review at your convenience. Classes will be conducted on-line live via Zoom, a video conferencing platform. About a week before the course begins, you will receive an email with log-in instructions for the Zoom 'meeting room.' Zoom is a user-friendly conferencing platform, with the ability to create a live classroom experience.

WRITING: ZEN AND THE ART OF WRITING BETTER OR AT LEAST, LESS WORSE

Writing doesn't have to be agony. We'll explore how to move your prose from fair to good and good to great. We read and talk about great writing and tackle a writing project or two. The class usually produces some laughter and tears too (not from taking a critical beating). This is the 10th year of Zen class. Class is limited to 12 students.
