Join us for a FREE 5-week course exploring the genres of poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction. Discover and hone your unique voice as you write without worry about grades or exams. We'll work on elements of craft, share work, edit work, and share it again. Come ready to chase the ideas that spark your imagination, and put words on the page that surprise, amuse, move, and inspire you and others.
