SUMMER CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP COURSE
June 7th – 27th (3 weeks)
Advanced Creative Writing: July 2nd – 23rd (3 weeks)
Creative Writing Summer Course is a 45 plus hour intensive workshop designed to encourage writers to discover and experiment with their own voice. The course will assist the student’s exploration into the realm of his/her own creative resources. To aid in this process of discovery, students perform spontaneous writing exercises in class and experiment with persona, voice, and character. The intensive summer component will also examine the relationship between the writer and his/her life landscape.
Over the course we will read and discuss the work of writers whose travel in other lands, especially Greece, has affected, and in a significant way created the essence of their poems and prose. How does the nature of our travel to a new place impact our writing? How does the heart respond to its new environment? An ongoing element of the workshop will involve our own writing: a search for a new vantage point adding new windows to our perspective. 3 credits
