Class Level


Intermediate-level classes build on skills developed in Emerging level courses. You should have a reasonable understanding of the basics of writing craft and writing terms (e.g., point of view, voice, rhythm, alliteration) and some experience and/or comfort level in sharing your work in a group setting. This level is ideal for writers who already have a personal writing project(s) in progress.
