This course is for writers starting out and beginners trying to find their genre, be it in fiction, memoir, short story, poetry or a novel. You will explore different writing genres with hands-on exercises, reading the works of established writers and workshopping the participants’ own work. This critiquing will be done in an encouraging and friendly atmosphere along with tips and advice. By the end of the eight weeks participants should have a clearer idea of what writing entails and how to pursue it.
