This Class Is Full

We generally think of communicating as the primary goal of writing. And often it is primary in terms of importance, but it’s always secondary in terms of the process. First, you need to figure out what you want to say. Writing is a great way to discover what you think about a topic, how it makes you feel, and why it matters. Once you’ve arrived at that, you’re ready to communicate.


We’ll discuss the different attitudes and approaches needed in the discovery and communication phases of writing. And you’ll get lots of practice doing both on a topic of your choice.
