This course is designed to free students from the expected into the unknown. Using writing exercises, students will begin to understand how bucking traditional form can unlock their imagination and help them embrace the messiness of their first draft as something to cherish, instead of something to discard.
November 4th - 7th from 6-9pm EDT.
Where: Online via Zoom
Preparation Required: None
