“Good writing grabs our attention, compels us to keep reading, and transports us to other worlds and other lives,” says instructor Heather June Gibbons. “How can words alone make us feel so intensely, make us care so much about what happens next? When a character seems real to us, when we can smell the smoke from the fire, feel the softness of the baby’s cheek, when we are moved to tears, or to laughter, it can seem like magic.”

Whether you're feeling stuck or just getting started, this one-day intensive will introduce you to strategies that will invigorate your writing practice and enhance your skills. Heather says, "we will cover three essential areas of the craft of writing—imagery, energy, and pattern—focusing on practical strategies and techniques (we might even call them tricks!) to bring our stories, reflections, and worlds to life. Our time together will include interactive activities, inspiring short readings, lively discussions, and in-class writing exercises."

In this one-day intensive, you will gain a practical understanding of core writing techniques, generate fresh creative material, and take home resources designed to help you practice these strategies on your own.
