This is the Year: A New Writing Habit Starter
Do you keep meaning to write but find yourself waylaid by parenting, work crises, news headlines, Netflix, or other fill-in-the-blank interlopers? Do you periodically sit down and create a draft but never seem to get back to revising it? We’ve all been there. But this year can be different. Let the gold-sequins-and champagne-feeling of early 2020 along with a sequence of punchy literary reads, daily feedback on drafts, and intention-setting exercises float you right into renewed writing practice. Join like-minded January resolvers in identifying current writing goals, scheming ways around obstacles (so 2019), and choosing from among both generative and revision-focused prompts to produce a fresh stack of enlivening new work. Each student will receive a personalized 2020 Writing Road Map email from the instructor at the end of the class, outlining some strengths in their work, as well as suggestions for next steps/resources to support their specific writing goals.
All genres, all levels. Inspire yourself.
