We encourage class members to bring copies of their own creative works—fiction, nonfiction, poetry etc.—and to read them aloud in class. Other class members provide feedback by sharing what worked well in the writing, what might need clarification or improvement, and ideas for publication etc. The respondents may also provide written feedback to the presenter. You’ll have the opportunity to rewrite your work in response to the feedback. Each class will begin with tips on writing. This course is for all writers and, unlike most OLLI courses, you will be encouraged to do creative homework.

*This course continues to meet during the intersession on the following dates.

Coordinators: Keni Cox, Jeanette Reese and Fritz von Coelln
