Each of us has a story to tell. Whether your story is fiction, creative nonfiction, a memoir, or an essay, the elements of writing are the same. Students will work on different writing elements each week and share their writing by reading it aloud, then critique the work of other class members. All levels of writing experience are welcome.
This class will be held online using Zoom. The Zoom Meeting ID and link will be included in your registration confirmation email.

Explore the four main plays of William Inge through interactive discussions and readings. Winning the Tony, The Pulitzer, and the Oscar for his work, Inge captured the heart of his small-town Kansas life. Besides reading his work, we will also watch three film adaptations of his work. You'll leave class with an understanding of dramatic construction, character development, acting and directing choices, as well as an introduction to how an artist's biography affects their work.
