About this course:
This workshop explores how to situate your story idea into its most powerful form. If you’ve always gravitated toward writing novels or short stories, screenplays or poems, you are encouraged to explore new territory and new fields of writing. Whether your subject is a locket your grandmother gave you, an adventure you had when you were a teenager, one of your life’s accomplishments, or a disaster, everything makes for compelling writing. We work together to decide how to tell your story, whether memoir, screenplay, stage play, short story, song lyrics, or an opera! You are encouraged to experiment with a new genre, and together, we’ll get the story moving!
