In this 6-week course, you’ll refresh your creative writing toolkit with literary devices and techniques that you can apply to any genre of writing. Through a series of activities and prompts, you will do hands-on writing each session, growing your skillset and reconnecting with some classic writing tools. With engaging approaches to sensory language, defamiliarization, personification, comparisons, and more, you’ll have some ready-to-apply skills at the end with an optional longer prompt to incorporate your knowledge into.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
