Fulfill that New Year’s resolution to write your memoir, novel, essays, or short stories. Through in-class prompts and instructor-led discussions, you’ll learn how to heighten reader stakes, create engaging characters, develop a compelling plot and hone your personal voice. You will write stories based on your life experiences (nonfiction), your imagination (fiction), or a combination of both (creative nonfiction). The workshop will also explore the many paths to publishing.
