Freewriting Intensive: Fiction + Creative Nonfiction

Do you have story or essay ideas but don’t know where to start? Are you wondering what to do with those completed drafts that need revision? Or, maybe you’re a first-time writer looking for a way into the work? We will break down specific craft elements and then use what we’ve learned to delve deeper and complicate our initial ideas.
