Ready to use writing prompts and exercises to jump-start your creativity? Sidestep perfectionism and get words on the page with Jessica Cagle-Faber. This two-hour class is designed to inspire writers of all levels. In the class you will use prompts (or writing exercises) that work for all types of writing, from memoir and personal essay to poetry and fiction. With just an old-school notebook and pen, you will generate ideas rapidly, while sidestepping the perfectionism that often stifles creativity. Or bring your laptop. Those who want to can share what they have written. Come and get ideas for your next novel, poem or nonfiction work.
