Winter Writing Class: The Stories You Need to Tell
Words on the Verge alumni, Sejal Shah, teaches this course beginning January 22nd 11:15am to 1:15pm. This course gives students the support and structure to begin or continue writing. Students will read creative nonfiction essays by contemporary writers, generate a few first drafts through writing exercises, and take one short essay of your own through a round of revision. The class will cover such topics as setting, imagery, and where to begin (first paragraph, first sentence).
