(Hill Center) Getting Started: Creative Writing

Loading Events

Before the holiday madness sets in, why not take a personal breather? In just two Saturday afternoons, you can explore several forms of creative writing. By jump-starting with fun exercises, we will circumvent the analytic brain and give imagination a chance to thrive. You will receive tips on how to free up memories and experiences and use them as inspiration for memoir, fiction, poems, creative nonfiction or journal-writing. Hallmarks of the workshop include in-class assignments, opportunity to read your writing—or not, as you choose—and receive positive, helpful feedback that will point the way toward your writing talents.
