Whether you’re an experienced writer mired in the middle of a project or an absolute beginner trying to get your first words onto paper, this generative writing class will help unleash your creative mind. This class is 10 class hours and runs in both 4- and 5-day sessions depending on classroom availability.

Each day we’ll touch on different aspects of craft: point of view and narrative distance, character, tension and plot, detail and setting, and the possibilities of form and structure. We’ll look to writers who do these things exceptionally well, examining their secrets for inspiration. Fired up by what we’ve learned, we’ll turn to in-class writing exercises, generating new material that is fresher and stranger than we thought possible.

This class is open to writers of all levels of experience, English and ESL speakers.
