Stories are the essence of what makes us human. Through them we share experiences, learn new perspectives, and explore the world around us. With this four-part course, we will delve into writing basics -- generating ideas, structuring narrative (fiction and non-fiction), crafting prose, and the revision process. Each evening includes a brief lecture, in class writing exercises and discussions. This class will leave you with a firm grasp on the essentials of crafting a compelling story. The goal is to lead you to a finished piece by the end of the course. Class requires about one hour outside of class time working on assignments. Sandy Masuo served as a staff editor and writer for a variety of entertainment magazines for more than 15 years. She was a columnist for the Boston Phoenix and a regular contributor to the Los Angeles Times Calendar. In addition to her writing credentials, she holds a Master's Degree in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
