In this course we’ll dive deeper into our writing passions, exploring poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. We'll work on multi-genre writing prompts, utilizing and sharpening all the tools in our kit. We'll set writing goals each week, support each other through free writes, exercises, and workshopping. We'll create a community of fearless, creative, and passionate authors interested in exploring all that creative writing has to offer us.

**All levels of writing experience welcome. Students can use this class to write a piece that is as long (or as short) as they choose.
