Creative Writing Workshop
Writing is creative when it is intended to communicate in more than a merely straightforward way. In this workshop, we will experiment with both conventional forms of creative writing—short fiction, lyrical poetry, drama—as well as techniques like automatic writing and genres like the epitaph. Toward the end of the day, each participant will choose one of his/her pieces for the class to read and discuss. Family friendly (ages 12+).
Instructor Chris Alderman is a tutor at Gutenberg College, where he teaches writing, Greek, and German. He holds a BA in English from Washington & Lee University and an MA in Language and Literature from the University of Chicago; he has also done work as a PhD candidate in comparative literature at the University of Michigan. Chris has self-published two collections of poetry, Poems in Verse and Ephemerides, and is currently at work on a semi-autobiographical historico-science-fiction novella set in a future Ancient Greece.
The Gutenberg College Workshop Series is an educational outreach program designed to serve classical education communities, homeschooling communities, and independent learners. The workshops offer participants hands-on, high-quality educative experiences delivered by knowledgeable instructors that help participants develop skills, understand the world they live in, and cultivate their intellectual acumen.
