Bring your ideas to life on the page with teaching artist Rachel Maddox! Through one-on-one mentoring, group process and feedback, participants explore real-life scenarios, humor, drama, and more, as they each craft original short works. Participants will also serve as actors in online readings of each other’s pieces. This program will require some writing during out of class time.
