Our writing takes many different forms in our daily lives: our journals, texts, letters, lists, and emails demonstrate how we use writing for both reflection and communication. In this course, we will explore writing as a means of creative exploration and self-knowledge. Guided by written and visual prompts to spark our inspiration, we will explore our world and ourselves through creative writing. This workshop is a welcoming space for you to nurture your expression, your ideas and stories- whether you write regularly, journal occasionally, or want to try new forms of creative writing for the first time. By connecting with our words, we can connect with ourselves and to the world around us.
