You have a lot to say! A story to tell, or stories, snippets, poems, or essays. You have a life full of experiences, incidents, thoughts, secrets, and you never found the time to write about them. You’re tired of the same old workshops and you just want to write but also you want to learn more about writing. Or you started writing, but you don’t where to go with it. My course is designed to help the writer find his/her voice personal voice, and to guide the writer in any chosen genre to find his/her style and process. It is exciting. Join this journey. There are NO rules in creative writing. Only your personal VOICE, and authenticity and observations.
This course will also cover all craft elements: i.e.: how to write a scene, dialogue, develop a storyline, point of view, and other craft issues. Instructor will personally work with each writer’s voice, and creative journey.
It will be exciting! Bring paper, pen, or computer. Start your creative journey together.
This class is considered a "Specialty Class" with limited enrollment for a more participatory experience.
