Summer Enrichment: Creative Writing

Description
This brief face-paced course is designed to explore your creative writing potentials in a variety of genres. You can expect various inspirational thinking and writing exercises and techniques. The first day will include brainstorming ideas and warm-ups such as free writes and writing based on innovative journal topics (including music and art). Each day after, we will focus on a different genre: memoirs, short stories and poetry. Writing can be autobiographical, or based on fiction or non-fiction.

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. Thinking out of the box and risking new ideas are qualities that will be welcomed. Drawing, coloring, and decorating as part of your writing, are welcomed as well. There are no grades in this relaxing and supportive environment, and you will get feedback on your work.

Note: Class does not have a lunch period.
