ONLINE: Freewriting Intensive: All Genres
Calling all poets, fiction and nonfiction writers! Are you looking for new ways into the work? Are you curious about using craft to challenge your instincts and skill set? In this two-day intensive, we dismiss genre distinctions and experiment with a series of vigorous craft exercises that seek to push us outside the bounds of our old habits and preconceived notions of “writing rules.” Let’s delve deeper and complicate our initial ideas. This is a revamped intensive open to poetry, fiction, and nonfiction writers. Come prepared to WRITE.
- Students will need tools for writing in class, such as laptop/tablet, notebook, pens, etc, as well as access to internet.
Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
