1 – 3 pm
Suspense and conflict, figures of speech and points of view, rhyme and rhythm, setting and scene, form and structure, diction and dialog, exposition and narration, plot and theme, assonance and consonance, induction and deduction, line breaks and stanzas: these are just some of the elements of creative writing. This supportive yet challenging workshop will provide weekly assignments to help writers at all levels and every genre master them. Lively class discussions of works-in-progress will give participants the chance to get feedback on their own work.
Brooke Bergan has taught creative writing for nearly twenty years; has published critically acclaimed poetry, fiction, essays, translations, and a play; and is currently working on a novel.
