Ucla Extension Creative Writing
We’ll have some time to discuss and share some of our work each day and get some feedback on how to proceed with the work we’ve generated, as well as get a list of prompts to generate new material at home.
Available for UCLA transferable credit and designed specifically for creative writers, this workshop introduces you to writing the feature-length screenplay.This fun weekend course promises to stock you with enough fresh material for 10 essays, stories, or even a book to flesh out over the months following the class.In an invigorating, supportive, no-pressure environment, we’ll use tested and effective writing prompts to get some beginnings down on paper for further development when you go home.Writing exercises from Barbara’s book, ‘Kicking in the Wall’ will help silence your inner critic and get you writing immediately, and you’ll also have the opportunity to read your work aloud for feedback.Fiction as well as memoir and personal essay will be explored. Instructor: Barbara Abercrombie has published novels, children’s picture books, including the award winning published by New World Library.
