Writing from the Heart

Location: UCB 104

The most powerful writing comes from the heart. What do you care about? What inspires you? What is special in your life? Write about the people and things that matter to you. Write to touch, inspire, move, persuade, and provoke readers. Write with emotion, write with spirit. Write from your own truest self to help others find theirs. This course explores the kind of writing that changes people, oneself included. And it begins honestly, one word, one day at a time. Class includes short writing exercises and tips and tricks, including creating a safe space for writing, overcoming barriers to writing, taking chances with emotion and humor, techniques to inspire and persuade.
