This Creative Lab will encourage aspiring writers to discover their authentic voice via fiction writing, poetry and journaling. Through daily mindfulness and freewriting exercises, as well as structured writing, feedback and revision sessions, students will practice the craft of writing while working to develop their own unique voice. Students will listen to podcasts, read memoirs and visit the stomping grounds of famous local writers for inspiration, and all students will receive daily constructive critique. The session culminates in a reading for family, friends and the larger community.
