About this course:
Whether you are writing a screenplay, short story, personal essay, or not even writing yet at all (but would like to!), the way to create and finish any project is through a consistent and committed writing practice. The regular discipline of writing can feel elusive and at times unattainable, but it can be done! In this course, students learn the fundamentals of creating a lasting writing practice as well as concrete tools to employ as defenses against procrastination and writer’s block. Class time will consist of lectures, in-class writing prompts, and exercises to build craft. Think of it as “Couch to 5K” personal training—but for writing. Rather than focusing on revising or improving a particular writing project, the class focuses solely on committing to the writing practice itself. All levels of writers are welcome.
Enrollment limited. This course is held via video teleconference. As such, instructors use Zoom to offer a live class meeting at the designated time. Students must be present at the course meeting time to participate in the class.
