DescriptionThis class is open to people with all levels of writing skills. Students will write every day under the guidance of the Festival staff. Each day will offer directed writing activities and close readings of literature from a writer's perspective. We will discuss poetry and prose, and students may write either or both. The class will focus on generating new writing. Students will practice several stages of the writing process: beginning, drafting and revising. At the end of the Festival, each writer will have a folder containing enough rough material to keep busy for months, as well as some polished pieces. These sessions will be especially good for teachers who must motivate others - and themselves - to write. The classes will also be valuable for writers who want fresh ideas and ways to focus their writing. Students who cannot attend all day should make special arrangements with Jeanne E. Clark: Bring pen and paper, a sense of adventure, and a sense of humor!
