How to Begin when your Head is Empty [Samantha Updegrave]
There are days when we sit down to write and nothing comes. In this hands-on generative class, we’ll use a series of writing prompts to generate ideas and get our pens or fingers moving. As the exercises uncover hidden ideas and surprising connections, we’ll refine our focus and develop these explorations into structured, finished pieces. For inspiration, we’ll look at a few examples of how to structure these kinds of essays and stories from short nonfiction and fiction. Class may include a peer workshop of rough drafts.
