Wreck It to Check It: A Crash Course in Fresh Methods, Conceptual Thinking, and Bold Experiments for Writers
Sometimes we have to constrain our writing in order to free it. Sometimes we have to expel that buzzing inner narrative of the day, the week, the past, in order to get to the one critical piece of information we're desperately trying to communicate. Sometimes it takes a thought bomb of cartoonish proportions to break away from that precious idea that isn't working, or through a logjam of exquisite prose that's still not making sense. Simply put, sometimes we've got to get away from what's comfortable, habitual, and fixed in our ways of writing (and thinking about our writing) in order to see the possibilities that exist for it.
Writers of all types and genres are welcome In this intensive skills course.During class, we will do and discuss a variety of exercises culled from the realms of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama, but applicable to any form of writing, and to common issues writers face. Through these activities and using these tools, students will learn/practice new ways of solving problems in their writing, unlocking ideas, generating new material, and self-sparking their ongoing creative work.
