Course Description: A Day of Generative Writing

Generative writing workshops provide time and space to create new work inspired by writing prompts, discussing craft, and sharing work. They stretch your writing practice by introducing new frameworks and forms, spark fresh ideas or dig up buried memories, and offer a place to share fellowship with other writers. This course will loosely explore the themes of "close and far," through reading short pieces of writing, engaging in silent writing to suggested prompts, and sharing our raw, but often exciting, pieces with one another. In the morning session, "There's No Place Like Home," you will click your pen into action and explore home as an idea, a way of understanding family, and as a physical space. Return after lunch for "Oh, The Places You Will Go" and focus your writing on the larger world; travel, work and community. Expand your portfolio of project ideas and short works-in-progress. Writers of all levels, in all genres, are welcome.
