4-Week: Online Writing Jump-Start—Family, Friends, Lovers, Foes

Online Writing Jump-Start

This class, for writers of all levels and genres, will rev up your writing practice with exercises designed to help you generate new material or build on existing work.  Each week we’ll find inspiration by focusing on one of four writing-friendly themes: This session we’ll explore relationships in various forms—family, friends, lovers, and foes. We’ll read theme-related published pieces, keep a freewriting journal, and prepare some early drafts to share. Participants will also create individualized writing goals and discuss aspects of the writing process.  

Note:  The Online Writing Jump-Start series can be taken individually or together, in any order.  Each part of the series has a similar format but covers different themes.

About Online Classes with Lighthouse

Our online classes are designed to be flexible. There is no set meeting date or time, so students can log in to participate whenever and wherever is convenient. Generally the instructor will post new material—such as readings, discussion questions, and writing prompts—on Mondays and students can post their responses to ongoing discussion feeds throughout the week.

On the Monday that class starts, we'll send enrollees instructions on how to log into their specific online class.
