    Creative Writing - 10 classes

    What words or message might be bubbling up inside you? What would you like to bring to voice? Whether or not your writing path is clear, you are invited to join a class community in which you can develop ideas, skills, and creativity. Before each class you access the Canvas platform for a brief presentation of a writing concept and an invitation to a writing exercise. In our Zoom class we present both our short writing exercise and a longer piece of our ongoing (or new) writing work. Either or both can be whimsical or serious prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, memoir, essay – all writing styles are welcome. Finally, we follow a supportive critique process that encourages us to HAVE FUN WRITING!

    "NEW" Written on the Body - 6 Classes                        

    A physiological approach to creative writing, using awareness exercises to prompt the imagination. Don’t let those words scare you: we will spend time quieting ourselves to better hear what the body wants to say. Perfect if we are still in quarantine! Students choose their genre: poetry or prose. Examples from literature and journalism will add inspiration (from inspire, “breathe-in”).
