This course is for individuals who want to tone up their writing muscles so they can go the distance. Each class will begin with a short warm up exercise followed by a prompt for a longer piece. We will then focus on specifics like effective beginnings, creative prose, and strong conclusions. Participants will also learn how to avoid common grammatical and usage errors that can distract from their message. This workshop will focus on both craft and technique and is designed for participants of all backgrounds who are looking to take their writing endurance and skills to the next level. Participants will have the start of several narrative pieces by the end of the class. Note: No meeting November 22.
