Syllabus Description:

Facing, with terror, the blank page, we wonder where to find the form, idea, and language to begin. Facing our complete drafts, we wonder how to bring them in line with those dreams of form, idea, and language which inspired us.

 This advanced prose writing workshop will focus on the creative process, from inspiration to revision. The first part of the quarter will be devoted to generating several brief pieces, inspired by different sources. The rest of the quarter will be devoted to writing two longer stories or creative essays and revising one of them.
