Amazing! Exciting! Exhilarating!

See what I did there? I just got your attention with my creative writing!

Are you adventurous? Do you like fun challenges? How are you at thinking in new ways? Creative Writing is the course for adventure, challenge, and innovation in writing. If you desperately desire to divulge your deepest discourse, (Whew! That was difficult!) then this is the course for you.

It's not all short stories and chapters of novels, either. We write all kinds of different creative exercises. Ready to build your creativity and have a safe place to make creative mistakes? This is the course for you!
