Beginning Creative Writing

  • OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute 3271 North Lake Drive Milwaukee, WI, 53211 United States (map)

Anaïs Nin, best remembered for her journal writing, said “it is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see new meaning in it.” 

Though participants will learn or review the traditional basics of a story including character, plot and intention, we will also shake things up, experiment with the writing process and push ourselves to become better see-ers. In other words, we will begin with the gentle art of noticing and how to take a walk in the woods.

PLEASE NOTE: This class is the first of a five week long workshop, and you must be a member of OSHER Lifelong Institute.
