What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

You think about writing, but every time you face the blank page, anxiety takes over and you can’t let yourself go. Maybe you have an idea for a novel, journal or essay, but feel confused and don’t know how to start. This is the class for you! Our goal is to create a relaxed and creative environment, where students will learn basic techniques to organize thoughts, call the muses and acquire discipline to write regularly. We will write in class and at home and workshop our pages with each other to help you kick-start or move forward with writing projects. Returning students are also welcome, as class activities change every semester. You will leave this class motivated to write!
