Madman, Architect, Carpenter, Judge – New!
Writers approach each stage of the writing process from a different perspective. We’ll try on those perspectives, taking one story from inspiration to completion. What’s the hardest part of your writing process? Beginning? Continuing? Revising? Finishing? Each phase requires a different attitude—we essentially become a different person. In this eight-week course, we’ll try on all the perspectives, aiming to complete a single story while we learn to push through those difficult parts.
