Writing is an often-overlooked art form that is easily accessible, but can be intimidating. This class is designed to remove the roadblocks and awaken the writer in you. You will begin by recording your thoughts and recalling memories using prompts to spark your creativity. Writing exercises will help you explore how these beginnings can become the foundation to springboard into other styles and formats (poetry, fiction, essay, memoir) as you discover your unique writing voice and purpose. Whether you write to publish or for the pure enjoyment it brings, personal writing is the place to start. All you need is a journal, your favorite pen, and your imagination.
