A writer is a collector of moments. In this workshop, participants will explore, through literary examples and writing projects, the construction of moments toward a larger piece. Learn to think like an artist, how to show experience through image, and manipulate mood and tone through the use of concrete and figurative language and literary devices, all the while reading some of the best contemporary writers. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity for detailed, constructive critiques from the writing instructor, and receive guidance on submitting work for publication. If you ever wanted to write, this is your moment.
