The New Creative Writing
Why do we write? To make money? Because we have a burning compulsion to do it? Writing is a practice that should bring us joy. This new creative writing course will use the answers to these questions to create a platform to launch ourselves into a world where the process of writing becomes more meaningful, where indeed the meaning of “being a writer” becomes more meaningful.
Using lively discourse, generative writing, and close readings, we will explore what’s new with writing memoir, flash fiction, poetry and more. Through flash fiction, flash memoir, slipstream, Instapoetry, and other new forms of writing,we will come into a deeper place of understanding the unique artistry within ourselves, what our writing is capable of achieving, and the effect it can have on other people across the world. We will explore beyond the old standard genres that have previously defined what it means to be a writer.
Over six weeks, we will develop a diverse portfolio of literary work designed to take readers, listeners and the writers themselves into the emotional honesty that allows for the very best storytelling. We will share our work in our in-person community and showcase our final products in public performance and publication. Writers of all levels are welcomeSIGN UP
