(NWI) Imaginative Writing Seminar: Works in Progress
Date: April 2 2014 5:30pm - April 30 2014 8:30pm Location: Lewis & Clark, TBD
Lewis & Clark, TBD
Open to graduate students, writers, filmmakers, digital storytellers, and creators in other media, this seminar is a collaborative studio for completing creative work, which also serves as the capstone course for the Certificate in Documentary Studies. The seminar directs the energies of the seminar community in the development of individual works in progress, with reference to the best in contemporary writing and documentary expressions in other media.
This course is part of the Documentary Studies Certificate Program.
Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
Note about this course: While participants who are ready to do so may complete major projects in this course, our focus will be on the completion of representative selections from on-going projects. A student might complete a chapter of a book, for example, in such a way as to be ready to complete other chapters independently, using lessons learned from the class community. Or a student might complete several representative segments for a film.
This does not need to be the grand finale, but rather good work in good company toward a cherished goal. In fact, the best opportunity may be to get companionable insight early in a project, in order to set a direction and clarify intent for subsequent independent work. Questions? Please contact Laura Moulton at email@example.com.
