The Women’s Creative Writing Workshop (5 weeks) is a mixed level two-hour generative writing workshop. This is designed for women to express their creativity and emotional truth on the page, to ask and seek support for their work or ideas, and to further their voices. This class addresses creative process and personal expression through narrative across the genres of fiction, memoir, and creative non-fiction. You will leave class with improved writing skills and a clear understanding of your personal writing strengths, process, and literary interests. There is an optional (use or lose) individual 30 minute writing consultation held on specific days within one week of the conclusion of class.
Partial scholarships and payment plans are available.
