Creative Writing

Creative Writing: Learn the Art of Writing Short Fiction and Poetry

Creative writing is not easily defined. It is like defining art. Together, we’ll examine great examples from the classic canon, and then apply what we’ve discovered. We’ll work with what you know and build.

We’ll gain a better understanding of the creative process: how it is writers get the job done.

Pro Tip: Most creative ideas don’t come from some magical place in the air. Instead, the best ideas result from hard work.

Fiction: Our focus will be on shorter stories: those under 5,000 words.

Poetry: Classic forms will be examined and tried, including haiku, limericks, sonnets, villanelle, free verse, blank verse, and beyond.

Let’s get to work.
