About the Class

This 8-week writing class will be led by Andrew Gaboury from 7pm-9pm on Wednesdays, once per week.


The purpose of this course is simply to put pen to paper, or fingers to keys. You will embrace stream of consciousness and write with abandon to escape the clutches of your inner critic. You will acknowledge and discover your natural creativity. As you define a healthy writing practice, you will explore various writing forms to help widen your creative vision. This class will touch upon fiction, poetry and playwriting.

 

As the course progresses there will be time set aside for sharing and feedback.
Each class will be a combination of writing prompts, a guided “lecture” facilitated by Andrew, group or solo writing time, and sharing circles.

What you will need:

  • Zoom access and a webcam

  • Writing implements (pens, pencils, erasers, computer)

  • Books (of any kind) close by

  • Paper (computer paper or lined)

Section 1: Fiction
Stream of consciousness, self reflection, narrative styles, genre & world building.

Section 2: Poetry
Metaphor & the senses, free verse, beat & spoken word.

Section 3: Playwriting
Playwriting features, narrative structure, character voice & dialogue.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the class!
