Beginning Creative Writing
Anais Nin (1903-1977), an American author born and raised in France and best remembered for her journal writing, said, “It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see new meaning in it.” While you will learn, or review, the traditional basics of a story including character, plot and intention, we will also shake things up, experiment with the writing process and push ourselves to become better see-ers. In other words, we will begin with the gentle art of noticing and how to take a walk in the woods.
