DescriptionWhether you tell great stories or you appreciate them, writing them down (and making readers and strangers care) requires a radically different approach and specific skills. This course on writing is open to individuals at all levels of experience with creative writing. Participants will do writing exercises, respond to traditional writing prompts such as a photograph or suggested scenario or dream and learn the basic structure, guidelines and editing rules for constructing a convincing narrative. It’s your story – but you have to write it right.
