Instructor Statement:

You have a story that wants to be told and I want to help you tell it. Wherever you begin as a writer in my class, my goal is to have you emerge as a stronger writer with a full set of tools in your proverbial writer’s toolbox. Classes will consist of lectures on various aspects of craft, a chance to apply that information to your work and peer work-shopping. Writing exercises and select, short readings will allow us to put into sharper focus what makes a piece of work successful and engaging.
