What You Can Expect:

  • Students will learn the fundamentals of storytelling – from finding a unique voice to coming up with memorable names and moving descriptions.
  • No experience is necessary! However, students will have time to work on their stories – new or old. So if you have a piece you would like to work on, be sure to bring it!
  • Students will be given writing prompts and will have the opportunity to workshop their writing in a caring and supporting environment.
  • Students will each receive a signed copy of Not Exactly Love, the latest novel for young people written by the course instructor, Asbury Professor Devin Brown.
