Artisan: a skilled craft worker who makes or creates things.
The operative words in that definition are: craft and creates. Writers are artisans: they must be good at the craft of writing and be creative to succeed as a writer.
This class covers both sides of writing: the left-brain, craft, side and the right-brain, creative, side.
Students will create weekly assignments in the genre of their choice and participate in read/ critique sessions.
Note: Each student will need access to word processing software and printer. There will be a suggested reading list, but the purchase of books is not mandatory.
