Creative Writing Across Genres for Teenagers
An 8-week online course designed to spark and deepen a practice of writing imaginatively. We will navigate and push the boundaries of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, and we will survey the terrain of multimedia writing. We will read with curiosity and write with joy. We will stretch and grow. We will offer with hope and respond with care.
Creative Writing Across Genres for Adults
An 8-week online course meant to support writers at any stage of their journey and at any stage of ideation or drafting of their writing projects. Along with shared readings as well as both group and individualized prompts, we will discuss practices and rituals that nurture ideation, sustaining a project, and revision. We will use a partner and group workshop model that could continue beyond the end of the course.
Youth class: every Wednesday at 4pm Eastern, June 24 – July 29
Adult class: every Thursday at 2pm Eastern, June 25 – July 30
Weekly classes will take place on Zoom and will last one hour
How it works
After you register, Amy will reach out to get acquainted and send a course packet.
Throughout the 6 weeks, she will send daily prompts and exercises based on readings. Every week during our Zoom class, we will discuss craft elements like voice and narration, pacing and shape, and participants will share their work in progress. Week 6 will culminate in a portfolio to submit to Amy for response and feedback, including a 1:1 Zoom conference, along with guidance on how to sustain and complete a writing project and how to engage with peers beyond the course.
