Creative Writing - Discovering Ourselves

Releasing Your Voice through Creative Writing

Eugene Ware said: All glory comes from daring to begin; to dare greatly, says Brene Brown. This class offers experience, ideas, and shared readings as we begin to begin, to start our stories in a variety of genre. By the end of this course, students should be able to have a good draft of whatever they're writing with an opportunity for public reading. Writing is an adventure that inspires and motivates. Students will be supported throughout this process. Creativity means resourceful, our birthright, and we'll write together in the context of our times and culture.
