Creative WritingprintversieThe focus of this course will be to create and develop a personal story. The idea of the workshop is to help beginning writers overcome any prohibitive distance between their self and their narrator.
When we read a diary entry, a page from an autobiography or a piece of fiction written in the first person, we can usually tell the difference, but what are the characteristics of the various genres? How does a beginning writer take his written thoughts to the next step, which is communicating with a larger audience?
In this course we will develop a sketch of a personal experience, i.e. a poem, a scribble on the back of a napkin, a diary entry or simply a thought and transform it into an autobiographical piece of writing or fiction that reflects the author’s own distinct voice.
No previous experience is required.
