“The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.” — Muriel Rukeyser
This is a hands-on class with plenty of in-class writing prompts, activities, exercises, and discussions to strengthen your writing muscles and your written voice. We will generate new pieces of writing as well as look at and apply tools for revision. This class is for anyone wanting to explore writing in different genres and looking to develop a writing practice.
*Please note: This course is a virtual learning opportunity held via the online platform, Zoom. The link needed to participate will be supplied via email prior to the first class session.
