    The Tiny and Ordinary-Creative Nonfiction In this class, we will mine our memories, life experiences and musings about everyday life—the recent and not-so-recent, that’s your choice. We will write from prompts designed to shake up the recollections and ignite strong story ideas. There will be opportunities to share your work in class and also learn the art, value and skill of offering feedback and constructive critique to fellow writers. The goal will be to craft and polish several short pieces-glimpses into one’s world using stories of small, everyday moments to frame the narrative.
