Generative Nonfiction and Fiction Workshop: Section A - Remote!
Generate new material for an existing or future fiction or nonfiction project in this 3-hour, in-class writing focused seminar. Inspired by short published texts and prompts, you'll try out half-dozen (or so) exercises to help practice your skills in craft areas such as description, setting, scene-writing, point of view, character, reflective voice, and voice. On a voluntary basis, you may briefly share the work you produce in class. By the end of class, you'll have generated a handful of short passages which can serve as "starts" and new directions for your work.
For writers of all levels.
This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
