Do you actually like to write? Does it excite you to see the worlds in your imagination come to life on the page? Then this is the class for you! Song lyrics, poetry, fantasy or sci-fi and realistic short stories – we will try them all. In this class, you will share your work with other student writers, explore the work of some professional writers you probably haven’t heard of yet, and, most importantly, you’ll become better at your craft. On the fiction end, you’ll learn more about characterization, setting and plot development to keep your readers glued to the page. And on the poetry side: sounds and senses, free verse and formal. We’ll go deep in the jungle of sound where no prose can follow. Come join us!
