We all love stories, whether we encounter them in novels, memoirs, personal essays, films, or our best friend's anecdotes. However, it can be hard to describe why a particular story works or doesn't work. This workshop will help you better understand and appreciate how a story is put together and give you the tools to create your own. Using readings and guided writing sprints, we will explore techniques used in creative writing and practice applying them. There will be opportunities to critique each other's work, using guidelines that inspire constructive and positive suggestions. If you want to understand or review the fundamentals of creative writing, this workshop is for you.
