This class will help you foster your individual voice as a writer as you are held to weekly writing deadlines. This class will offer you opportunities to pitch ideas to others and collaborate with other students on assignments in class. You will also get to hone individual pieces through rewriting.

This first sketch should be written utilizing the concept of the "Game of the Scene," taught in Sketch 101.
