Prerequisite: Introduction to Developing a Writing Habit or Participation in a Past Developing a Writing Habit Class
Showing up to write isn’t half the battle – it is the battle. This class will help you develop writing habits that will boost your confidence, help you find your “voice,” and keep your writing process in motion. We’ll investigate ways to playfully expand the imagination and increase creative output as well as work with prompts that will help inspire specific writing projects, and most importantly generate new work. Participants will leave with a tool kit to keep the writing flowing.
Important note: To register for this class you must have either 1) participated in a past Developing a Writing Habit Class or 2) registered for or taken the prerequisite class: Introduction to Developing a Writing Habit. Those signed up for the four-week session will receive a writing prompt prior to the start of class, and workshopping will begin the first session.
