Start Writing, Keep Writing…Write Now
Creative writing is fun! And finding your voice doesn’t have to be hard work. It’s just a matter of letting your words and ideas flow onto the page without tinkering and re-tinkering your way into a creative cul-de-sac. In this class, you’ll write–in the moment–to cues and prompts and then share your work in a safe and positive environment. (You can always opt out.) You can write in whatever form inspires you, from prose (memoir, nonfiction, fiction) to poetry.
Meet your instructor
Wordsmith Alison Schoew is fascinated by language. She holds an MA in Applied Linguistics (study which only further fueled her passion for language and dialect), and has taught both at ODU and at The Muse Writers Center.
Some of her favorite moments are spent writing with a roomful of people to a specific cue, and then listening (as they share) to the spectrum of voices that that specific prism provokes.
Her aim is to help students jumpstart their writing in a positive, engaging, immediate, and not-even-slightly-threatening environment.
