Road Stories: Driving the Story Highway
What is it that you really want and maybe even need to write about? Are you stuck in your comfortable style or is your writing “voice” beginning to stutter or sound boring, even to you? Are you in the same-‘old-same-‘old rut? Or do you want to write, but don’t know how to start? This class is a hodgepodge of kinds of writing: narrative; memoir; poetry; essay; fiction; nonfiction. If you tend toward serious themes, you will have a chance to tickle your funny bone. If you tend to trip the light fantastic, you will be challenged to stray off course and dig a little deeper. The seasoned writer will find new venues; the novice writer will hit their motherlode of talent and everyone will leave gob-smacked by what they can do with all the possibilities before them. Carefully designed writing assignments encourage class members to explore new ways to say what they have always wanted to say, but didn’t knowhow, or maybe didn’t even know they wanted to say. Come. It’s a little bit lion taming, a little bit high wire work and some days we’ll unload the clown car.
