The Write Stuff
Sorry, we are no longer accepting registrations for this course. Please contact our office to find out if it will be rescheduled, or if alternative classes are available.
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

School of Education.
