Summer Enrichment: Creative Writing

Description
This brief course is designed to explore your creative writing potentials in a relaxing and supportive environment. You can expect various inspirational thinking and writing exercises and techniques. The first day will include fun warm-ups such as free writes and writing based on innovative journal topics. Each day after, we will focus on a different form of writing: memoirs, scenes with dialogue, short stories and poetry.

For some pieces, you can work alone, with a partner, or in a group. You will be encouraged to develop your own voice while experimenting with forms and structures. You will write daily and regularly share your work with other students. Thinking out of the box and risking new ideas are qualities that will be welcomed. There are no grades, but you will get feedback on your writing.

For students who took the class last summer, I will have lots of additional practices and ideas – so please join me again.

Class does not have a lunch period.
