Breaking Through Writer's Block (16100)
Two Mondays: October 17, 24, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Do you have great ideas for a story or an essay but can't seem to get them on paper? Or are you a writer who seems to have run out of inspiration but would love to get back to work? Come to this two-session class to get a jump-start on sparking your creative process. In our first session, we'll tackle a variety of strategies to bust through writer's block; when we meet again, we’ll see what worked and why.
**This class will be followed by What Am I Missing about My Writing? and students of this class are encouraged to sign up for both; dual attendance is not required, as both sessions are open to everyone.
