Course Detail: O_PROMP - Writing from Prompts

Discover the amazing power of prompts to lead you to a level of writing you didn't think possible. Leader reads the prompt, which can be a poem, a saying, a question, etc., and everyone writes for 15 minutes. Writings are then shared with the group, but anyone can pass at any time. Feedback is only about the writing, e.g.: what's strong about the writing, what phrase leaps out, etc. Positive feedback frees the writer to delve deeper, try styles of writing they didn't think they could do. It is truly a transformative experience.
