Creative Writing Classes
Discovering the Writing World for the Loft Literary Center
An eight week online course for beginners running Wednesday, March 1 to Wednesday, April 26: Discovering the Writing World.
In this class, we will discover paths to create poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. We will share writing from authors whose work we admire, as well as read and discuss advice from writers such as Billy Collins, Jim Moore, Anne Lamott, Joan Didion, Tobias Wolff, and Edith Pearlman. We will generate ideas, discuss methods to begin new work, and use writing exercises to help us focus our voice. We will write and share in a safe and open setting. Optional homework will be given each week. Through writing, reading, exercise, and sharing work, we will investigate ways to build or enhance your writing life. Please be prepared to submit a favorite quote, paragraph, or poem by an established writer to the first class.
