Don’t have the time to commit to a multi-week class but want to develop essential creative writing skills in one inspiring and productive online session? This is the class for you. This one-day intensive boot camp will help you sharpen your writing skills in a fun and encouraging environment.

Whether you want to write a memoir, a short story, a poem, or a screenplay, there are core techniques in the craft of writing that are relevant to all genres and forms. In this workshop you will learn and practice essential techniques in the craft of creative writing, such as character, voice, description, and narrative, that will help to bring your stories, reflections, and worlds to life. Interactive exercises, lively discussion, and in-class writing prompts will give you practical tips and tools to hone and enliven your writing.

“It will be a jam-packed session of hard play and fun work,” says instructor Heather June Gibbons. “You’ll leave with fresh material, and resources and inspiration to keep your momentum going after the class ends.”


About The Writing Salon's Remote Classes

Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, The Writing Salon has moved all spring classes to a remote learning format. You will be able to participate in live class meetings via Zoom videoconference. To attend classes, you'll need a phone, tablet or computer and access to the web. You can participate in the class from wherever you'd like, whether on your living room couch or in your home office. Before your class meets, you'll receive an email from The Writing Salon with more information about Zoom and your remote class. If you have any questions about remote learning, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at hello@writingsalons.com.
