Writer's Workshop (In Person Only)

OSH 382 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English

Course Description:  This informal workshop helps you create and share first-person, non-fiction, or fictional pieces. You will learn writing tips and read your work aloud in a supportive communal setting. We offer ideas on how to improve each piece in a supportive, constructive, safe environment. It has been shown that many writers learn more from workshop discussion of each others' pieces than in a formal creative writing class setting.  Each week, two students submit a piece to class members for discussion and questions. Additionally, the instructor edits each piece and covers common topics such as confronting writer’s block; bringing characters to life; developing a plot, creating a family memoir and editing one’s own work.
