The introductory writing class series uses poetry, memoir, critical fabulation and speculative fiction to teach students the power of their own voice. Using the written word as vehicles of discovery and remembrance, students will come away from this workshop series with a strong writing community, diverse writing samples from varying genres and confidence to read their works out loud. Students will write their past and future selves across genres in a safe and judgment free online environment.

This class will be held virtually.
