About this course:
This course is for anyone who has a story from "real life" that needs to be told. Sometimes your story is about a person, place, thing, or some concealed part of yourself; a remembered time or event; or even something that will happen as you give account to its unfolding. Over the span of this course, you identify this element of your story's core fascination and acquire the skills to tell it, including researching and interviewing techniques, cultivating your own unique writing voice and constructing your story into a combination of episodes that advance and present it to best dramatic and imaginative effect. Finally, you investigate possible venues where each story might most effectively be presented.
Enrollment limited to 15 students; early enrollment advised. Visitors not permitted. Internet access required.
