Mary Walsh, MA, author of A Spy is Not a Spy, creative writing instructor Flagler College
Fiction or not, this course is a lighthearted approach to what some consider a serious endeavor: the written word. Participants will recognize what makes writing engage us and try their hand at the following skills: the backstory, the narrator, description, the narrative arc, and writing to the conclusion. Each class will focus on one of these. Students will respond to weekly prompts, or if you have something specific in mind, that can be your goal. The only requirement is the desire to write, and an openness to listen to the work of your fellow classmates, should they choose to share.
