“If you’re thinking, I’d like to write, but I don’t know what I’d write about, then you’ve come to the write place,” says instructor Rob Williams. “In this class, you’ll write and write and write. Not sure what you want to write about? Perfect! You’re not supposed to know. That would ruin all the fun of discovering your material.”

Through weekly in-class writing exercises in a highly supportive environment, you’ll free yourself up from worrying about what you make in your writing so that you can be fully engaged in the process of making it. Whether you want to write poetry, stories, personal reflections, journal entries, or fragments, we’ll get your pen moving across the page (or fingers tapping across the keyboard). We’ll share our work (optionally, of course) to help each other identify what resonates in our writing.

Over the course of five weeks, you’ll learn to silence your inner critic and trust your natural writing voice. By giving yourself permission to play, you’ll generate new material each week and learn to embrace what William Stafford called, “the reckless encounter with whatever comes along.”
