Creative Writing Workshop

Creative Writing Workshop
8 sessions • 16 hours

Explore the origins, function and format of storytelling with us. Discuss and understand the importance of elements, such as plot structure, character development, conflict, resolution and more, in an open environment with in-class exercises and group participation. Includes a brief discussion of the writer’s market, and the opportunity to receive critique from the group for a personal project.

Instructor: Jason (J.P.) Sloan
J.P. Sloan is a speculative fiction author … primarily of urban fantasy, horror and several shades between. His writing explores the strangeness in that which is familiar, at times stretching the limits of the human experience, or only hinting at the monsters lurking under your bed. A Louisiana native, Sloan relocated to the vineyards and cow pastures of Central Maryland after Hurricane Katrina, where he lives with his wife and son. He worked in the city of Baltimore for several years, a setting which inspires much of his writing.
