About this course:Too often writers value the completion of a new work over the process itself. In this intensive, two-day workshop, you study and celebrate the creative process of writing through a series of in-class writing exercises and readings. From the development of three-dimensional characters to the importance of conflict and super objective, you draw from both personal life experience and pure imagination to find the stories that mean the most to you. The final goal of the workshop is a greater understanding of the craft of writing and the essential tools necessary to take your work to the next level.
