Let's get together!

This mini-course is for creative writers who'd like a chance to connect and gather for community, conversation, creative play, critique, short workshops, professional skills, and time to write.

The theme for this retreat is "Creative Process". In addition to the time to write and engagement in the Literary Arts and Studies Path, you'll finish this retreat with new tools and strategies for generating work, developing projects, revising creatively, and moving your work into the world.

Before each retreat, students will need to complete a few preparatory tasks via Canvas and gather for a short pre-retreat online video session (details will be on the course Canvas site).

We will gather for two Saturdays, at the end of weeks 5 and 7 (October 29 and November 12), 9:30 - 5:30. The first retreat will emphasize community, writing time, and generative activities; the second retreat will include more time to write, critique discussions, celebrating work, professional skills, and learning about the Literary Arts and Studies Path. You can use the writing time for any kind of work you want — new work, old work, or assignments from other classes. Health and safety permitting, both Saturday retreats will be in-person only.

To complete this mini-course, students will develop a chosen workshop-related assignment (focused on refinement of work, publication strategies, or professional critique and review practices) and submit finished work online before the end of the quarter.
