Everyone’s got a story to tell, and this four week class is designed to help you start yours, whether it’s a short story, an essay, or creative nonfiction. We’ll explore fundamentals of fiction and nonfiction through weekly readings, discussions, and writing exercises that will inspire you and get you writing. You’ll have opportunities to share your work and get oral feedback from the class and from the instructor. (Please note that we do not have formal workshops with written responses in this class.) In addition, you’ll get strategies for creating an ongoing writing practice that works for you. Classes are welcoming, inspirational, and fun. This class is suitable for experienced writers who need a little inspiration and for those just beginning to explore writing.
Please note that our 4-week workshops do not include formal critiques, though there may be opportunities for informal sharing. If you’d like your work critiqued in depth, please see the 8-week workshop listings.
This class meets weekly for 4 weeks, on Mondays, from 6.30-8:30, and will meet in Lakewood, at Office Evolution, near Belmar.
