DATE CHANGE: This class will now take place on 12/14. This has been updated from the print catalog.
To write from an outline is to know from the beginning where you’re headed. But what happens if you dive in with nothing but some scraps of dialogue, an idea, or a gut feeling? To write without a planned destination is to allow your work to surprise you—often in wonderful ways. In this generative workshop, we’ll use a series of prompts to create freewrites that build to a complete first draft of a new story. Please come with paper, pen or pencil, and a willingness to explore.
