Welcome to Writers' Scavenger Hunt.
What This Class Covers
This four-week intensive is a cross between a writing workshop and a scavenger hunt. Each week, Chuck will describe a storytelling technique to you. And then you'll be tasked with finding examples of that technique.
Your example could come from history or pop culture. It could be from a book or a movie. Doesn't matter. You just have to be able to find a place where the technique has been used effectively.
Then, you'll bring your example to the table—and write something in which you utilize that technique. It can be a new piece of writing, or you can apply it to whatever you're currently working on.
Each week will bring a new challenge. And each piece of writing you put forth will be critiqued by both Chuck, and by your fellow students. Along the way, there'll be opportunities for discussion on the craft of writing.
Oh, and Chuck will be awarding prizes to the first or best finder of each week's example...
This is a new class concept, and one we're thrilled to try out. If you're in, you'll have to buckle down, so show up prepared to work—but more importantly, be prepared to have some fun!
* We kindly ask that students who've taken this class previously please resign from signing up again.
