This 8-week course will expose writers to the craft of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. Writing activities will include artistically personalizing their own journal (first class); reading short works by published authors; participating in games and writing exercises; writing to prompts; and working on longer pieces (writer's choice). Hadley will especially focus on character development: creating a character and putting that character into a plot line. She will also provide inspiration and (positive) feedback on students' work--and the course will culminate with an anthology of stories. The class will be collaborative, interactive and engaging for writers regardless of their previous creative writing experience.
