It can be daunting to reveal your inner voice. This is where a supportive environment can offer you a weekly opportunity to safely discuss and share your work with others. Over these ten weeks, you will experiment with different forms of creative writing to find your preferred modality. Each week, different aspects of plot and character development, language structure, and stylistic devices are explored. You will be encouraged to think about that all-important first sentence, consider the arc of the story, and find an ending that satisfies both the writer and reader. Learning to write authentically is less daunting when you have a tribe to walk with you. Take the chance to dip your toe into the world of creative writing. If you have experience already? This is an opportunity to deepen your practice. Writing improves when you have tools and support. This class will help you build the confidence to reveal the writer, that you know, lies within you.
