Creative Writing

Writing is about telling a story. What is your story? What story would you like to share with the world? Using our imagination and personal experiences, we will explore the world of creative writing through a series of exercises to help you grow. This is a wonderful opportunity for the student to enjoy the writing process, whether it's a special concept you've always had or a personal experience you would like to explore, this workshop will allow us to learn what it means to be a dynamic storyteller. We will also read from passages from published material, so we can also learn from the great writers of our time. We will discuss what you love about writing and what your thoughts are on what you look for in a compelling story. You will not only learn tools to become a better writer, but you will also learn how to have fun during the process. We use samples from great works of literature to inspire, teach, and learn. Past excerpts include works from: J.R.R. Tolkien, Franz Kafka, Jose Saramago, Paulo Coelho, Shakespeare, Orwell, Edgar Allen Poe, and many others. This class also encourages discussion and analyzing the work, which helps students become more articulate and thoughtful about other people's works. We will also explore different genres of fiction: realistic contemporary fiction, fantasy, historical, surrealism, thriller, comedy, and others. Students will have the opportunity to explore unique creative writing exercises, past exercises include: writing down dreams, poetry, writing based on news articles, paintings, mysteries, and also comic book stories.
