Imagery breathes life into prose, adding layers of meaning and an element of surprise to fiction and non-fiction. But how do prose writers get there? How do they burrow beneath the surface to find language that is uniquely theirs? To facilitate this process, the workshop leaders have created a series of playful writing exercises that enable students to access the hidden language and observations that reside within. (In so doing, the connection between imagery and writer’s voice is revealed.) Sessions are divided between writing exercises and discussion. The workshop leaders begin each class with a brief presentation and a reading. Writing exercises are explained and students set to work. Writing segments are followed by breakout sessions in which students read their work aloud, after which the entire class reconvenes and another writing assignment is given. In the alone/together online environment students have the privacy to write, while also benefiting from a supportive community with which to share their work. 

Three Sundays: February 14, 21, 28, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Online Class.
