Course Description

IN PERSON: This course provides a platform to help you write a personal narrative. Perhaps you have a family story that has yet to be recorded, or a personal story about something that happened to you. Maybe you have a topic you care deeply about that you are interested in exploring further. It can be comical, heartbreaking or even commonplace. We’ll use writing prompts to get the creative process going. This will be done in class, with time to share and respond. We’ll talk about key elements of a story, what makes writing effective and applying the rule that good writing is “showing, not telling.” We'll work to strengthen your descriptive style to make your story come alive. Students will work on their narratives between classes and bring them to class so we can critique them as a group. The goal is to give constructive criticism and encourage each other. By the end of the course, the hope is that you will have teased out your story and be on your way toward developing a well-crafted narrative. | Facilitated discussion, Active Skill Learning.

Max enrollment: 8.
