An exercise in self reflection and creative writing to celebrate the most important person in your life – you.
This quote by Neil Gaiman sets the precedence for the class
“Tell your story. “Don’t try and tell the stories that other people can tell. Any starting writer starts out with other people’s voices. But as quickly as you can start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there will always be better writers than you and there will always be smarter writers than you, but you are the only you.”
As writers we often forget the power of the authenticity and honesty that comes from personal truths and experiences. In this class, we will engage in creative writing exercises that will help you access and tell your own personal stories.
