Exploring Your Creative Writing Potential

This ten-week course through the UC Berkeley Extension for beginning writers helps you assess your potential, identify your strengths, and learn valuable writing techniques. Class exercises and weekly writing assignments help you discover your talents in a variety of forms: short fictional scenes, short story, poetry, and journalistic writing. A supportive atmosphere enables you to see how others respond to your writing. On completion, you should have a clearer sense of your writing strengths and directions to take for more advanced courses.

“Exploring Your Creative Writing Potential” was a remarkable experience. Over the summer I watched the group of us – beginning writers to experienced, ages ranging from early twenties through mid-seventies – transform in confidence, creativity, and authentic expression. Clive’s technique of identifying writers’ strengths and building on them created an environment of trust and enthusiasm that nourished us all.  It was an experience that will enrich my writing for life.”  – Sally Bolger, 2012

The next session starts June 2015
