Boost your creativity and strengthen your story writing muscles with Story Workout!
This energetic online class will give you prompts and exercises to produce new pieces and stretch your imagination. Each week, you’ll work through exercises based on different elements of story craft, and then share your writing to get feedback from the instructor and fellow writers. (And give feedback in return!)
You’ll finish the course with plenty of ideas, new scenes and characters to explore, and story starts to keep you writing throughout the fall.
What to Expect
Students can expect to spend two to three hours per week writing and interacting with classmates and the instructor.
This work will be supported by:
- a weekly video from the instructor introducing the topic
- an interactive lesson, moderated by the instructor
- new exercises and materials available every week
- full participation from every student to give and get feedback
- email for one-to-one interaction with the instructor
Students will begin the week with a lesson containing reading and discussion materials, along with specific exercises to reinforce craft elements. No long lectures or text. Just the important points and fun, imaginative exercises.
In between sessions, students will post their work and comment on the work of the other participants. The instructor will also provide feedback on the exercises.
The only requirement is a reliable internet connection!Top
