Freedom to Write Badly

As writers, we often worry about whether we're "good enough" to write. But what can we gain from permitting ourselves to fail? In this course, we'll cover classic tough topics in fiction, discussing the freedom and insight we gain from letting ourselves be "bad writers" and exploring aspects of writing which scare us. The specific topics we'll focus on will be student-provided but might include some or all of: dialogue, beautiful prose, plot, action, or perhaps sex scenes!
