Do you have a desire to write creatively? This course is appropriate for both experienced and novice writers. Participants may write in whatever genre of creative writing they choose and then share, if they wish, what they have written. A safe space is maintained by participants treating all work as confidential and being allowed to only make positive comments on each other’s writing. Writing can be wonderful therapy where friendships form.
