Course DescriptionHitting a wall or having writer's block is common for most writers; we get stuck, we get scared, and to paraphrase writer Patti Smith, we hit the wall of our imagined limitations. This workshop offers a way to kick in your own wall to move past writer's block and to get your story written. Whether you’re working on fiction, memoir, or personal essays, inspiring exercises will start you writing immediately and help you to find the door into the story you want to write, or, if you have a work in progress, to discover ways to go deeper into your story with a path toward finishing it. You’ll workshop your new material to get constructive feedback, have time to write and also learn how and where to find inspiration to continue a writing practice after the workshop ends. The course goal is to gain tools you can use to write through blocks and create a fresh, original piece of work in your genre of choice.
Course may be taken to satisfy an elective in either fiction/creative nonfiction certificate.
