Start with your own compelling experience and develop the details to discover its universal meaning in this creative writing class. This powerful form of literary non-fiction depends on the qualities we recognize in fiction—dialogue, setting, character, plot, and others—to create a fully rendered story, rich with subtle meaning. This class takes participants through the writing process from idea concept to a completed story of 3 – 10 pages.  Class time includes lively discussion of the genre, diverse readings, guided in-class writing, and gentle and fun mini-workshops.  After every session, you’ll go home with ideas and techniques to continue developing your piece. The class culminates in a supportive analysis of your piece from the instructor, and a carefully guided peer review to help you move forward when the class is over.

Start with your own compelling experience and develop the details to discover its universal meaning in this creative writing class. This powerful form of literary non-fiction depends on the qualities we recognize in fiction—dialogue, setting, character, plot, and others—to create a fully rendered story, rich with subtle meaning. This class takes participants through the writing process from idea concept to a completed story of 3 – 10 pages.  Class time includes lively discussion of the genre, diverse readings, guided in-class writing, and gentle and fun mini-workshops.  After every session, you’ll go home with ideas and techniques to continue developing your piece. The class culminates in a supportive analysis of your piece from the instructor, and a carefully guided peer review to help you move forward when the class is over.
