    Write a Review


    Not sure where to begin in your writing journey? Stuck in a writing rut and ready to explore a world outside of your typical style? In this course, students dip their toes into a variety of writing genres such as poetry, short stories, and personal narratives. They will explore the elements and characteristics of each genre while crafting original pieces and building a varied, well-rounded writing portfolio.

    This program will include: 

    •  Observational poems
    • An introspective letter
    • An emotional short story
    • A Three-scene play
    • A micro-memoir 
    • A work of flash fiction. 

    Throughout the course, writers will practice the fundamentals of creative composition, such as showing vs telling, point of view, character development, and writing from personal experience. Our final class will culminate, in a knowledge-sharing session about how to develop healthy writing habits and effective revisionist techniques.
