Everyone knows how to write, but does everyone have an audience? How do you write to communicate with the world at large instead of only writing for yourself? How does a beginning writer take his or her written thoughts to the next step, which is to mold them into a narrative?
What will you be doing?
The focus of this class will be to create and develop a personal story with the assumption that each participant already has their own, distinct voice and wants to get that voice out. This is not a step-by-step approach to writing, but more, how to make you the best writer you can possibly be, using your own style, for the story you want to tell.
You will get assignments that take you step by step through the writing process. You will not only get responses from the teacher, but from the class as well, a group of readers as well as writers. Writing will take place during the course hours, but, of course, you can work in solitude in the evenings as well.
