Writer’s Room: An Introduction to Creative Writing Workshops


Course Description

Are you interested in developing your creative practice in a workshop setting? 

In this 12-week workshop, we will explore four different disciplines of creative writing: playwriting, poetry, short fiction, and hybrid forms, focusing on creating and workshopping students’ new work. Students will read contemporary works in all 4 genres and will be given prompts for innovation in their creative writing.

The emphasis of the course will be on reading and creating in a multitude of literary disciplines while exploring a generative “writers’ room” environment where students will exchange with each other, offering and receiving feedback on their creations.

Each student will complete the course with a portfolio of their workshopped pieces with one-on-one mentorship from the instructor for a writing work in a genre of their choice. The goal of the course is to explore creative practice, taking inspiration from contemporary writers in a variety of literary disciplines, while learning to share work, and both give and receive feedback in a positive workshop environment.

There are no books to purchase for this course.
