The goal is to either continue or begin publishing your work. Still, writing is more than that. Not only is the process itself ultimately fulfilling, but right here and now we begin to create our own personal community of writers. Out in the “real world,” most of our friends and relatives want to solely read a finished product, and many have little interest in what it took to create it. Here, we build a village of fellow artists who want to talk about mechanics and structure and character and pacing. We want to read the rough stuff and help make it polished. Networking is not “work.” In this class it has already started!

All you need is a pen and paper. Some students choose to bring a laptop for word processing, if they feel more comfortable. Be prepared to bring enough copies of works in progress for everyone in class.
