This course will focus on the craft of writing, including but not limited to scene, structure, dialogue, plot, interiority and sensory details. Students will begin to identify their own voice, rhythm and tonality and help classmate identify theirs.

Mornings will take place via zoom with a prompt, followed by a discussion of the study of craft using examples from an assigned reading. Then another prompt and readings from student’s work.

After a break for lunch, students will work on assigned independent writing and reading. One on one mentoring will occur during the afternoon sessions.

Students will have a first draft of a story, poem or essay by the end of the week. Friday evening will be a celebratory reading, giving each student a chance to share their work.
