Sometimes, the most inspiring place to write is in a room full of writers. Writers’ Gym is a hands-on, improvisational writing workshop. This weekly writing “work-out” is designed to help students increase their flexibility and spontaneity, and generate new work. For a substantial portion of every class, students will be writing in response to prompts provided by the instructor. In this multi-genre course, students will explore various ways of telling a story, through fiction, playwriting and memoir. Time will be allotted for participants to share work aloud and receive feedback. Students will present a portfolio of work-in-progress written during the course. The class is open to students who have completed at least one course in creative writing, or who have professional writing experience.
