Recording our private thoughts is fundamental to growing as a writer. It’s where we muse on the things that trouble or fascinate us. But in this busy world, how do we set aside the time needed to be alone with our thoughts? And how do we turn those notions into something we can share with others? In this class, we’ll discuss the many options available for journaling as well as techniques for transforming these scribbles into polished stories, essays, or poems. Time will be divided between teaching, looking at examples, discussion, writing in class, and sharing.
