“I believe myself that a good writer doesn’t really need to be told anything except to
keep at it.”— Chinua Achebe
The purpose of our creative writing course is to do just that: encourage writers to pursue their craft. This workshop-style course is open to writers of all skill levels interested in using their imaginations and creativity. The course is designed to work in small groups and writers will explore different styles of writing, including but not limited to: fictional & non-fictional writing, short stories, poems, and plays. The focus of the course will be dependent of and tailored to the interests of the class!
Please be aware participants will be required to read and write outside of the workshop in preparation for class. Writers will need to come prepared to discuss other group members’ pieces, offering ideas of improvement, critiques, encouragement, and questions. Writers are also encouraged to bring their preferred writing mediums (laptops, pens & paper, etc.) to all class meetings.
Instructor: Aiden Thomas
Aiden Thomas is a recent graduate of Temple University with a certificate in Writing. She has experience through academia with writing fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and plays. Aiden believes that a workshop environment allows participants to share their work without criticism, providing a freedom for writers to express themselves. She also believes that creative writing is a form of expression that can have a very cathartic effect; it can allow writers to discover things about themselves that they never knew before, or never truly understood.
