creative writing 101

The Thursday evening “Creative Writing 101” class encourages all 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, ideas for publication etc. The respondents may also provide written feedback to the presenter. There will be an opportunity to rewrite the work in response to the feedback. Each class will begin with tips on writing. This class is for all writers and, unlike most OLLI classes, encourages members to do creative homework.
