An examined life is worth living, to turn Socrates' well-known quote on its head. But how do we do this? One way is to establish a personal writing practice, also known as journaling. Journaling might give rise to thoughts of "Dear Diary" moments from childhood, but with the right techniques, a journaling practice allows you to tap into your creativity, uncover hidden thoughts and emotions, and delve deep into your memories, hopes, and dreams too.

You will learn 12 different journaling techniques to examine your writing life. Plenty of in-class writing time is built into this class, so you can experiment and, if desired, share aspects of your writing and the writing process. At the end of this class, you have the know-how to continue, explore, and deepen your personal writing practice.
