Looking for inspiration? A breath of fresh air? A few minutes’ diversion?
Then stop by and visit some of the student pages here. It is our hope, as a creative writing classs, that our work can bring joy, laughter, reflection, or even tears to the readers who come by to browse.
Visit everyone or just your favorites. Make sure to stop by “The ‘I Like That!’ Page.” It features the best examples of first-draft work from each day’s writing activities, as voted on by the class.
Consider your stop here like Henry David Thoreau’s sojourn into the woods:
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms…
Please join us as we learn to suck out all the marrow life and put to rout all that is not life!
