Online Workshop: Creative Writing 101 (5 Weeks)

Instructor(s): Louise Wareham Leonard
Beginner Beginner

This is a course for beginning and intermediate writers of fiction to refresh you on the basics of writing: creating an authentic voice, using basic principles of concision, visuality and style, knowing your choices for structuring a story and most important, writing to prompts— and sharing your writing for feedback.  Reading and writing assignments will be given, books suggested according to particular needs and guidance provided to make you the best writer you can be, whether it is your first piece of fiction or your 500th.  Flash fiction, short stories and novel writers all welcome — but the focus is on the page, down to making each sentence and paragraph a reflection of you, your perception, and your talent.
