About this course:

The scariest part of writing is staring at that blank page! This workshop is for anyone who has wanted to write but doesn't know where to start, or for writers who feel stuck and need a new form or jumping off point for unique story ideas. The course provides a safe, playful atmosphere to experiment with different resources for stories, such as life experiences, news articles, interviews, history, and mythology. A series of in-class exercises explore or introduce different writing forms, such as short stories, personal essay, plays, and even poems or songs, and generate a notebook filled with unique story ideas from which you craft several short pieces.
