Do you have a memoir, novel, or chapbook trapped inside of you? Set it free with this course about the basic elements of creative writing. Every week, participants will read creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, and apply their reading to exercises designed to generate pieces that effectively utilize character, setting, and plot. Participants will leave the workshop with a familiarity of multiple genres; initial drafts of fiction, poetry, and/or nonfiction pieces; and a set of writing exercises they can use to maintain their creative momentum.
NO SET MEETING TIME: This workshop will take place over Wet Ink, which is an asynchronous creative writing platform. The instructor will post a lesson and assignment at the beginning of each week, and participants can log in and read the lessons/post assignments/comment on other classmates’ work at their convenience. Shortly before the start date, participants will receive an invite from Wet Ink to create their login info and access the class. Please check your spam if you don’t see it.
