It’s Your Thing
In this workshop, you can write whatever you want: personal memoir, screenplay, TV pilot, political manifesto, rock opera, sports investigation, epic poem, western comedy, horror-romance, spy-sci-fi, or some sort of strange, new thing, you’re not even sure what to call it. Whatever it is, you must write it fiercely and bravely, and that will mean writing at least two pages on your own time every week. We will spend the first few classes free-writing and brainstorming, diving into our memories, fears, beliefs, and desires to mine for material, then each student will choose a single project to focus on until the reading. The group’s job will be to work together to help each writer discover, develop, and complete his or her unique piece of writing. This is a workshop for advanced students, who have either already taken an Uptown Stories workshop, or who get permission from the teacher by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
