Everyone has a story. What’s yours?
Uncover and draft stories from your own life. This class is not about criticism or critique, but rather a supportive environment to craft your own narratives. You will focus on idea generation and guided writing exercises.
You can find your syllabus here.
Open Studio time is included with registration. Open Studio allows currently enrolled students to work on their projects in Oklahoma Contemporary’s studios outside of class meetings. Availability varies weekly.
