Genre: Fiction, Mixed Genre, Short Stories

Sometimes, the hardest part of writing is getting started. In this workshop, we’ll get started on one story, and then another, and then even more. We’ll focus on quantity, revel in play and experimentation, leaving you with a handful of started stories that you can keep working on after, or pull ideas from for even more stories. Whatever genre you want to write, this course will offer prompts and exercises to translate your ideas from brain to page, putting writer's block on the chopping block.
