Write from Experience
Creative Writing from one’s own experience, either fictionalized or nonfiction. In this class, we'll work on writing out the stories the students have to tell. By breaking down basic story structure, doing writing exercises, and honing in on what story means the most to them, we'll then build toward a final project for which the students as a team will decide the format: a magazine, a book of short stories or essays, or (possibly!) a podcast.
