OSH 382 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English

Course description:  This continuing workshop highlights personal writing and does not include lectures or reading of well-known authors’ work.  Rather, it offers peer review, constructive criticism, and an opportunity to read one’s work aloud in a supportive, communal setting. Students new to this workshop might wonder what they might learn from others in the class.  It has been shown that some writers learn more from critiquing and carefully listening to others’ critiques than in a formal class setting.  The workshop includes memoir, the novel and short fiction.  The workshop leader and class members may make suggestions regarding common writing issues including confronting writer’s block; constructing an arc of a short story, novel or memoir; bringing characters to life; and editing one’s own work.

Recommended Text: Creative Writer’s Handbook, 3rd Edition by Jason and Lefcowitz, which can be purchased online for approximately $4. 

Instructor: Ms. Jeanne DeQuine
