Course Description

“Write what should not be forgotten.”—Isabel Allende Write for yourself, for your friends and family, or for eventual publication. We will explore short-form writing such as personal essays, flash nonfiction, vignettes, and poems. You will have opportunities to read what you’ve written and receive positive feedback. At the end of the six weeks, you will have increased trust in your creative intuition and can expect to leave with the beginnings of 12 or more stories from the heart (prose or verse). You may focus on a project, or go with the flow. This approach works for writers at all levels, including beginners. Writing by hand is encouraged. Your instructor will provide source materials: craft essays and examples of writing selected to demonstrate literary techniques and elicit memories of your life, the life of your family, and your place(s) in the world. The only requirements are a notebook and pen, an open mind, and a kind heart. | Active participation.
