Class Description

Higgins Ross leads participants through the process of generative revision, what she calls, “Diving Deep.” Participants will free write from a prompt and then we will share work, pull out words / phrases / sentences that feel particularly meaningful, and use those as passageways into further exploration. Higgins Ross will lead several individual writing exercises, as well as group exercises that will help participants feel safe and comfortable diving more deeply into their writing (memoir or fiction).
