This is your chance to take up writing in a warm, supportive environment. This course will open the door to writing short stories and writing dialogue, writing in first person and writing in third person, writing just for fun and writing all kinds of things. You’ll get a shot of inspiration every week and an assignment to keep you going till the next class. Best of all, this class will provide a zero-pressure, totally safe setting, where your words will grow and flower.
The course will focus on writing prose, but for one class, we will have a distinguished poet for our guest speaker:
Elizabeth Crocket is an author and poet. Her Japanese short form poetry has been published internationally and in most of the leading journals. She had two chapbooks published with Red Moon Press. One of them, Not Like Fred and Ginger, was shortlisted for the prestigious American Haiku Foundation Touchstone Distinguished Book Award.
She currently has two poetry books, Wondering What's Next and How Soon the Colour Fades, published with Cyberwit.net. It was just announced that her first children's picture book, Happy Haiku, published with Crimson Cloak Publishing, has also been shortlisted for the American Haiku Foundation Touchstone Distinguished Book Award.
