PROMPTAPALOOZA! Ten Prompts to Generate Ten Beginnings in Two Days

Weekend July 21 to July 22 2018

This fun weekend promises to stock you with enough fresh material for ten essays, stories, or even a book, to flesh out after our time together in Iowa City. In an invigorating, supportive, no-pressure environment, we’ll use tested and effective writing prompts to get some beginnings down on paper. We’ll have time to discuss and share our writing at the end of class each day and get feedback on how to proceed with the work we’ve started. You’ll also receive a list of prompts to help you generate new writing when you return home. Ten prompts. Two days. Let’s do this!
