Everyone is creative. You may say things like “I don’t have a creative bone in my body,” but you do. Everyone is also a writer. In fact, you’ve been writing most of your life. Most of you write every single day. Whether you journal, text, or tweet you’re writing. You already know what you’re doing; all you need is a bit of coaxing to find out how creative you actually are! In this class, you will learn tips and tricks to help you find your creativity, so come to class ready to play with letters and words!

Supplies: We will provide pen and paper. Please bring your own notebooks, tablet or laptop if you prefer.
