ONLINE Creative Writing Basics 1 (Daytime)
Start learning the foundation of creative writing. Creative Writing Basics 1 is designed for individuals new to the craft, or writers who may have taken a creative writing class in the past and are looking for a refresh. Topics will include: free writing, establishing a writing practice, story arc, character, setting, conflict, POV, dialogue, description and writing mechanics. Students can expect lecture, discussion, writing exercises, and writing outside of class. Sharing is encouraged but always optional. By the end of this class, students will have the basic tools to write compelling short stories or creative nonfiction.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
