Creative Writing Class Offered At Mythgard Institute Online College
Have you ever dreamed of being an author?
Ever wondered what it takes to write a great story? Sign up for Signum University’s first course in Creative Writing and find out.
Writer and teacher Ben Wilkins (MFA, George Mason University) will be leading a 5-week craft seminar, where students will study and practice the basic building blocks common to all creative writing, with a focus on short fiction.
We will read and discuss great short stories of those who have gone before, with an eye toward emulating technique. Then students will break into smaller groups where they will provide all-important feedback and encouragement on one another’s stories — working together to move from first draft to finished piece.
And just as with our partner in learning, Mythgard Institute, we believe that all fiction is fiction: to be judged on its own merits and not by its “genre.” Imaginative writing of all kinds is strongly encouraged.
The goal of this course is to give students the tools to unlock their imagination, to practice the sub-creative arts, and to further their appreciation for writers and for literature. Everyone has a story to tell. Tell yours.
