One of the hardest things for many writers is knowing where to begin, so we’re removing that roadblock in this short, fun course. For this class, we’ll view a picture and then write about it. This exercise may sound simple, but it enables us to practice some of the fundamentals of writing. Whether you’re a beginning or experienced author, this course will teach you how to write attention-grabbing prose using concrete images to tell a story. We’ll discover the power of point of view and stretch our descriptive muscles.

Participants will:
• Use critical and observational skills to extract information from a picture.
• Write what they see.
• Discover the surprising power of images to create theme.
• Refine their piece (250-500 words) based on constructive critical feedback.

This class is taught by a graduate student in the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s MFA Program in Creative Writing
