McNeese State University Fall 2012 for Writers

Where I'm From: A Workshop Approach to Writing From Life - Mine your memories and life experiences to produce pieces in forms of your own choosing to share with family and friends. Respond to a series of prompts, explore craft and revision ideas, and give and receive feedback in an informal workshop setting.
Instructor: Connie McDonald
Location: Library, McNeese Room
Date: Tuesdays, Oct. 9, 16, 23, & 30
Time: 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
Cost: $49/$59 after Sept. 25

Flash Fiction Workshop - This course will explore the craft of writing flash fiction - micro stories that are usually no more than three pages in length. Flash fiction often has the same elements of a classic short story but - because it is so brief - requires the reader to make inferences of his own. In this course participants will have the opportunity to explore and workshop their own flash fiction pieces with the group. Since this is an intermediate level course, participants should have previously taken a leisure learning flash fiction course or submit a sample writing piece to the instructor for approval.
Instructor: Rachel Rinehart
Location: Library, McNeese Room
Date: Wednesdays, Oct. 17, 24, 31, & Nov. 7
Time: 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Cost: $49/$59 after Oct. 3

  1. I've been privileged to have both of these instructors last semester and they are excellent teachers. Both of these classes are well worth attending.
