The Writer's Studio: Time is of the Essence: Quick Starts to Great Writing
The Writer’s Studio is a free workshop series open to all students from all majors. Come study the art of writing in intensive, fun, hands-on workshops with dynamic faculty from the Creative Writing program, the Stanford Storytelling Project, and others. You’ll leave with an expanded understanding of what your writing can do.
In this workshop, we will undertake a series of intensive timed writing prompts and activities designed to push your creative limits and generate several pages of new material. Working individually and together, we will map out some of the strategies that authors use to carve out time and “jump start” their creative projects. You will walk out of class with three to five “starts”: short pieces that you can take home and develop into stand-alone poems, essays, and stories for your own writing.
John W. Evans is the author of three books: Should I Still Wish (Nebraska, 2017), Young Widower (Nebraska, 2014), and The Consolations (Trio House, 2014).
