Students will explore techniques that weave literary creativity into true stories. Whether you are a news journalist, book author, travel writer, or blogger you will find the week both practical and inspirational.
Students will gain the tools that all good writers master to transform a notion or assignment into a viable story idea, and then shape that idea into a compelling piece. The week will include a mix of fieldwork and in-class exercises to practice various techniques. Jacqui will help students diagnose their unique writing patterns, and meet with them one-on-one to complete a story or build a future writing plan.
"Writing is not magic. But done with equal measures of discipline and passion, it can be magical."
