Girls’ Creative Writing Workshop
Fees and Information
The GIRLS’ CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP will cover fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. You will leave class with a solid introduction to creative process, voice, style, form/story structure, imagery, and dialogue. While this class provides a broad overview of literary craft elements, the primary focus is voice. We will review literature through the eyes of a writer. This means we will be looking to understand how the writer creates a particular world. This is a generative writing class—come ready to use your laptop or to write with pen/paper.
The requirements are this: try your very best to do the reading required, work on writing that matters to you, and enter the space with an open attitude.
