This course is designed to open your own personal portal to the untapped imagery and ideas that swirl in your brain. It is a workshop to provide each student insight into the “idea” of creative writing and the practice of creative writing. This course is intended to give students exercises that will allow them to throw down barriers to the creative source within them. We will be reading fiction and poems from published authors, and most importantly our own work that is generated from the class assignments. At the end of the course, students should feel an impulse to “let it flow.” The one thing to remember when writing creatively is, “It is never been done before, so how can anyone tell you it is wrong. If it feels right, then do it. Follow your intuition.” We will take a journey down the writing road and overcome barriers to confidence, ability, story, character, plot and message.
