Students at this level have a grounding in the tenets and technical terms that are the building blocks of The Writers Studio approach. Focus turns to enriching the work by creating an individual voice and tapping into an underlying emotion. This class asks students to recognize the specific qualities that make a narrative or poem engaging and entertaining to the reader. The goal of this class is to help students use a full range of techniques to create and sustain an effective artistic distance. In this level students begin to gain greater emotional freedom and depth in their work.
The Workshop follows the Craft Class syllabus (along with readings distributed by the teacher) from which exercises are taken. Students at this level are tapping into their personal material and beginning to work on completing stories and poems. Students can move into an Online Level III class after taking a Writers Studio Tucson Intermediate Workshop.
Open only to students who have completed The Writers Studio Tucson Workshop and upon the recommendation of the teacher.
Writers Studio Tucson classes meet once a week for 8 weeks at Storyland, 1202 E. Broadway Blvd., Tucson, AZ 85719. For more information, please contact Renee Bibby: 520-591-8795 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
