Write creatively in your chosen genre in a welcoming and supportive environment using generative exercises designed to inspire imagination and reinforce skills. Students will learn and use the Amherst Writer’s and Artist’s method (https://amherstwriters.org/philosophy), a non-critical response to classmates’ writing. Writers of all levels of experience are welcome, from beginner to published. Course will include writing to prompts, feedback, submitting to journals, and reading one’s work. Writers will generate between 4 and 6 pieces of writing.
