You will be given writing prompts in class and guided through sensorial meditation/exercises which activate your creative world. We will look at and discuss the works of great short story writers. You will be given writing homework which the instructor will read, edit, and make suggestions on how to improve and deepen what is already there. This class creates a supportive, encouraging, and inspiring space in which the spark of each writer's potential will be expanded upon. Expect reading, and writing homework. By the last week of class you may have a very first draft of a story.
