“Write what should not be forgotten.” —Isabel Allende Write about the people, places, and times from your life. Write for yourself, for your friends and family, or for eventual publication. Together, we will explore short forms like personal essays, vignettes, and narrative poems. You will have opportunities to read what you’ve written and receive positive feedback. At the end of the course, you will have increased trust in your creative intuition, and you can expect to leave with the beginnings of 12-plus 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. Your instructor will provide source materials: craft essays and examples of writing selected to demonstrate literary techniques and elicit memories from your life and the lives of others you've encountered. Requirements: a notebook and pen, an open mind, a kind heart. | Active participation.
