You have a truth to tell, a story to share. Select from a myriad of formats: fiction, personal essays, personal stories, poetry, drama, etc.

Participants will work on short or long pieces. Each week, submit a work up to 750 words,  read it in class, and receive student and instructor feedback. If we don't have time for everyone to read that week, submit the piece to the instructor for a critique. You will read aloud a minimum of every other week.

In addition, you will receive instruction on a variety of writing topics, such as writing tips and resources. Have fun becoming the author you've dreamed about in our friendly environment. With gentle criticism and strong support, we can all enhance the skills we bring to class.
