Creative Writing Classes

I are a writer

Ed Griffin is offering an incentive to all prospective writers who want to see what a writing course is all about. It’s called the Pay What You Can Program. For this term only, Ed is offering his Introduction to Creative Writing and his Creative Writing Seminar classes to a maximum of 15 students. Each student will pay what they can, either a lump sum at the beginning or cash/coins in the hat each week.

The course descriptions are:

Introduction to Creative Writing:

It’s time to start writing: your life story, the novel you’ve dreamed about, the poetry and songs that are in your heart, the article you want to write, or perhaps a stage play.  No more excuses. Learn the techniques to conquer your inner critic. Now is the time.

The subjects covered will include: ways to unleash your creativity, character, plot, poetry, article writing, novels, short stories, marketing, and the rules of writing. Student work will occupy one half of class time.

Cost: Pay What You Can Program (Old Price: $89).  Course manual required and available from the instructor for $18.00.
