This community education course is open to all levels of writing and will focus on developing story-writing muscles by jumping in and getting started. The closest thing to a textbook will be the second half of Stephen King's ON WRITING, the gist of which being: Write a few pages every day, setting aside consistent time

and space to enter that form of self-hypnosis which allows the writer to record

characters attempting to resolve conflict.
