Mondays, January 27–March 23 (no class February 17), 1:00–3:00 pm

About the Program

Focus on the practice and craft of creative writing. As participants develop and revise their work, they will learn about various writing craft elements, including style, voice, dialogue, character development, and story structure. The goal will be for each class member to prepare one piece for publication. Both fiction and nonfiction (memoir, personal essay) writers are welcome.

Hyatt received an Outstanding Instructor award for her work as a creative writing instructor at UMass, Amherst. She is a former Fulbright Scholar.
