All Levels | For many writers, there is nothing as anxiety-inducing as the blank page, and this class is designed to help fearful writers find the courage needed to begin, or finish, a project. We will look at writers who admit to anxiety, uncover reasons why we are fearful, and practice techniques that will help us face those fears and produce work. Also, we will write. A lot. Students will leave class with 25 pages written toward a project and instructor feedback.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
