The Fearless Pen (ZOOM)

Introductory | 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. Also, we will write. A lot. Students will leave class with 25 pages written toward a project and extensive instructor feedback.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
