Starting the fire: Creative Writing Workshop (Students Only)
This short but intense creative writing workshop is meant to be a firestarter for your literary writing interests. In a short story format you will have the opportunity to understand the basic rules and elements that underpin this brief type of narrative and, most importantly, you will be writing from the very first minute of the workshop.
