(This program continues for multiple sessions)
Saturdays, October 5 – November 23

1 – 3 pm

This class is full and registration is closed.
Led by Brooke Bergan

Suspense and conflict, figures of speech and point of view, rhyme and rhythm, setting and scene, form and structure, diction and dialogue, 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 of every genre to master them. Lively class discussions of works-in-progress will provide participants the opportunity to get feedback on their own work.

Brooke Bergan has taught creative writing for more than twenty years; has published critically acclaimed poetry, fiction, essays, translations, and a play; and is currently working on a novel.
