- We’ll write pieces inspired by our readings and discussions.
- We’ll study how established authors convey emotion and meaning in short pieces.
- We’ll fawn over sentences, quick dialogue, well-placed descriptions;
- Try to emulate masters while honing our unique voices.
Writers from all skill levels and genres are encouraged to apply.
