Teacher(s): Gertrud Tinning
This Folk High School Class – Creative Writing – is based on the idea that powerful writing is NOT about good spelling and grammar, but about finding the good story. What blocks creative writing is often our fear and internal editors – voices that have silenced us.
What is a good story? There is no definition, but in this class you will be challenged with many different writing exercises, and introduced to techniques and stylistic elements that can improve and develop your writing.
Writing is hard work and improving it requires practise, and while there will be time set aside in class to do some of the writing be prepared to work on your own outside of our Folk High School Creative Writing Class. You will get feedback on all of your stories.
