Writing is honestly fun and good for you even if sometimes difficult and frustrating. 

If you’d like to try writing, re-awaken your writing brain, write more, or get out of a writing rut, this may help.

You’ll write a Very Short Story …  flash fiction, a drabble, a dribble, a TED-like talk, or a Moth-like narrative.  

In class we use examples, exercises, and discussions about writing to loosen up and experiment.  Outside of class you work both on your Very Short Story and other short assignments - bring them along the following week for sharing and comment.  All along, the idea is to do it for the real fun of it.

Rosemary McCarthy appreciates tight, efficient writing. She was a reporter and producer in commercial radio and public radio and television, and holds an M.A. in Journalism from the University of Nevada, Reno, where she taught journalism. She has offered several media-oriented courses for WISE.
