Section Description

Brimming with warm-up exercises, prompts, and peer interaction, this writing workshop challenges you to heighten your imagination, deepen vocabulary (diction and syntax), and expand your capacity to make creative connections in the process of writing in three genres: Poetry, Fiction, and Creative Nonfiction. This winter session course will inspire and ignite in you a passion for craft, with close attention to purpose, audience, and point of view.   You’ll master invention and revision at all stages of the writing process, synthesize approaches to writing so that each nourishes the other, and—ideally—attain confidence in your ongoing potential as a writer.
