Course DescriptionJust as every human being has a unique personality, every writer has--potentially--a unique voice through which his/her vision may be best expressed. Designed to help beginning and established writers discover/develop that voice, this workshop includes exercises to discover personal patterns of diction and imagery, dissolve blocks, recover lost memories, tap into the individual wellsprings of creativity, and explore personal mythologies. You also study selected writers to determine what constitutes a "style" and read student works in a supportive atmosphere. Through active and playful class participation, you learn how to listen for your own writing voice and let it emerge.
