Steal Like a Writer

Writers often read the work of other writers in order to develop their own ideas. In this class, we’ll learn how to see new ideas in others’ writing and borrow them for our own work. We’ll rewrite the dictionary on our own terms, create poems that can’t be digitized, and make up backstories for characters in one-panel comics. We’ll focus on learning how to find and create your own prompts so you can keep writing long after our time together. Good skill-building for those who lead or want to lead writing groups. Young writers in any genre welcome.
