Writing Sprints is an exercise-intensive course designed to “unstick” writers struggling to start or continue new projects, boosting writing productivity. The course relies heavily on in-class writing exercises, as well as weekly writing share-outs. Students will be expected to read out loud; participate in in-class writing exercises; and produce approximately 5-8 pages of new writing EACH week for group feedback.
