About The Event
Some people assume that writing means typing, the act of setting down so many words on the page, and they can feel disappointed in themselves if they aren't fulfilling set goals. But writing is so much more than simply typing - the tap-tap of keys is only the tip of the iceberg - and involves not only research but significant amounts musing upon the subject at hand. In the act of creative writing, as in any creative act, productivity is too intangible to qualify and true progress can never be measured by numbers of words. In this class we'll support you in stepping away from the keyboard and engaging in specialised exercises (writing and non) that will stoke the fires of imagination and inspiration and ensure that, when it finally comes time to start typing you won't be setting down any old, but only the most apt, words.
