Can you find inspiration? Ready, Set, Write!

Have you ever dreamed of taking a writing class where you were at the helm of the ship?  We will brew up a writing experience designed - by you - to hook your audience. So bring all of your unpublished pieces to this space.  Every day we will find a "writing focus" from "the untrue" to a haiku to the five senses, bringing us right to that very moment when you Saw-Tasted-Smelled-Felt-and-Heard it! What if we started with the illustration? How are you visualizing your story in your imagination? Let's start with the picture and then build in the words.  This is an inclusive experience--students will be heavily involved in the planning. All aboard…to destinations to be determined by YOU!
