This starter course will explore elements of the writing craft such as character, voice, dialogue, and basic editing. Participants will produce their own material by responding to writing prompts. They will have an opportunity to discuss and receive feedback on their work in a supportive and encouraging environment. They will also read and discuss selected texts, making the essential step to reading as writers. Through this combination of writing, reading and discussion, the course will address the difficulties encountered by beginning writers.
