Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing.
Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group.
This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
For information about participating in our virtual workshops, please see our FAQ page.
This month, instructor Fernanda Santos discusses "Writing the Self." Untold experiences are often painful to narrate—and also to listen to. At this pivotal moment in history, it's more important than ever to be able to articulate those experiences: death, illness, despair, the end of a romance, our disillusions. In this workshop, we will engage in the difficult yet necessary exercise of digging within ourselves to find a story we haven't told, but believe needs to be told.
- Cost: $5.
- Register below or directly on Eventbrite.
- Refunds will not be issued within one day of the event.
