If you're a budding writer, or wish you were, this is the class for you! Find inspiration in the art you'll see and use the art of writing to express yourself. Learn how to look closely at a work of art, listen carefully to other writers, give and receive constructive feedback, and develop your writer's voice. You will receive a weekly at-home assignment and be invited to share your work with the group. For the first class, bring a short piece of original writing. It may be a poem, story, comic strip, essay, or personal account about writing.
This class is a great way to prepare a story to submit to Story Pirates, who are visiting the Robert and Magrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts.
