Adventures in Creating Writing

Develop your writing and your creativity! Learn essentials of creative writing and practice your skills.

Expand your imagination by working with published writers from the USC English Department, who will help you explore possibilities in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. We will learn essentials of creative writing with exercises devoted to both creative development and revision, and we will visit the local art museum to expand our creative possibilities.

At the end of the week, we will have a performance and you will take your work home in a small class anthology.
