PROMPTAPALOOZA 2020! 10 Prompts to Generate 10 Beginnings in 2 Days

Weekend June 27 to June 28 2020

This weekend course promises to stock you with enough fresh material for 10 essays, stories, or even a book to flesh out over the months following the class. In an invigorating, supportive, no-pressure environment, we’ll use tested and effective writing prompts to get some beginnings down on paper for further development when you go home. We’ll have some time to discuss and share our work at the end of class each day and get some feedback on how to proceed with the work we’ve generated, as well as get a list of prompts to generate new material at home. 10 prompts. 2 days. Let’s do this!


In this workshop, we will generate new writing through exercises and assignments; provide feedback on writing you produce in our weekend.
