What you'll learn in this creativity training:

In this course, we will explore the art of writing. We will learn how to search for and follow the feeling or the fire that will be become a piece of writing. We will discuss structure, how to move through a story or poem, how to follow image or character. And finally, we will discuss revision, how it is that a piece finally comes out the other side, complete.

We will read some short pieces as a group and discuss the way they are put together. We will do a variety of writing exercises designed to both get the creative mind moving as well as to practice some of what we have discussed is present in the reading.

About the Instructor:

I teach creative writing at Brooklyn College, where I also received my MFA in fiction writing. My short fiction has appeared in the Colorado Review and is forthcoming from the South Carolina Review.

Materials Needed to Participate Fully:

  • Writing materials

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Alyssa was very thoughtful and nurturing. She helped me both hone the skills I had as well as get me out of my comfort zone as a writer, all in the span of an hour.
