Explorations in Creative Writing

Creative writing, at its heart, is a discovery and practice of connecting our emotions with words. It’s important to note that this class is far beyond a lecture.  We will not be concerned with rules, style and grammar; but rather how to spin a great yarn. In this hands-on experiential workshop, we will use playful exercises to warm-up and free the blocks and resistance to writing creatively.  Together, we will discover the structure of a compelling story and create characters people care about and learn how to use dramatic conflict to engage an audience.  In many ways, this can be a life-changing course.  You will better understand and appreciate all of the stories you are told, the ones you tell and the stories you tell yourself.
