About this course:

As we travel along life's path, our stories are the most precious gifts we can pass on. In this course, students are encouraged to write stories that have affected their hearts. Be they funny or sad, about good times or bad, each student has an opportunity to share a new short story every week.  Write a story about the one that got away, or the one you decided to stay with.  Write about the lessons you learned, the dinners you burned, or what you did when you came to a particular fork in your road.  Note: this course has required weekly writing assignments. Students must meet weekly deadlines in order to receive instructor feedback and participate in group storytelling sessions.
