Let’s begin with what these courses are not… the standard creative writing class.
We focus on you and the process, and believe the outcome will take care of itself. But you have to begin, you have to keep going. The first order of the day is to explore your many selves …and many narratives. And we do this by exploring Psychological Archetypes. Consider this a gift, a pilgrimage into yourself. No one’s opinion matters. You are at the centre.
Writing is the art of applying the ass to the seat.
― Dorothy Parker
I’d say, Writing is the Art of Listening too. You will get plenty of tools, tricks and exercises to:
- Figure out what’s stopping you: Face the Critic sitting on your shoulder, whispering in your ear.
- Make the story world come alive.
- Generate material.
- See patterns and make connections.
- Work towards shaping the full first draft.
