CREATIVE WRITING – Gary Dop
The Creative Writing class at SHP 2011 devours whatever inspiration we can find in our teaming minds or our complex world. Our days are a combination of writing exercises, prompts, lessons, workshops, and revision. This year we’re exploring how we move from abstract ideas (love, hope, despair, commitment, equality) to concrete images and evocative scenes. During our two-week intensive program, we worked on interviews, film scripts, short stories, poems, and personal essays. We laughed, we cried and we learned something about ourselves and our world. And as always, we guarded the Gnome.
