Write, Write, Write

Whether you’ve been writing awhile or are just beginning to write, you need a jump start or a writing schedule, or you want help finding your way into particular topics or uncertain frontiers, this week-long writing intensive will help you renew your relationship to your imagination, your voice, and your limitless possibilities to write, write, write.

Using a balance of in-class discussions and exercises, as well as take-home practices and assignments, you will dissolve writing blocks, befriend your inner critic, experiment with language, engage in word-play, and pursue the stories, poems, and memoirs within you.

By the end of this writing-packed, fun-filled week, you will have a community of peers and a notebook full of writing—the essentials for a sustainable writing practice.
