“I love the process of digging more deeply into creative work, finding the nuggets of gold as well as the places that don’t yet shine but will once we apply our attention and craft,” says instructor Katharine Harer. “It’s always illuminating to take this journey with a student.”

In this class, we’ll build our writing skills and techniques while also giving useful and supportive feedback on each other’s work. We’ll do focused writing exercises where we practice shaping compelling scenes, sharpening sensory imagery and details, and creating strong openings and effective endings. Class time will also include reading well-crafted work by published writers.

“By the end of the five weeks, you will have begun to hone your voice and writing style,” says Katharine. “And you’ll have the satisfaction of moving at least one writing project forward and the know-how and confidence to continue the journey.”

*This class is open to students who have taken Intro to Creative Writing at the Writing Salon or a similar introductory course.

  • I found Katharine's teaching style empathetic and helpful. She was always about improving, no matter what level we were at. 

  • I think Katharine is a great teacher. She gives everyone respectful, individual attention. She lets everyone have their own opinion and encourages us to listen to each other with the same empathy.
