I'm happy to announce (with loads of excitement) that I have been accepted as a continuing education teacher at AIMS Community College for a creative writing class. It will be so great to 1) be teaching in a non-grading capacity and 2) be on a college campus again. I might have to go to the book store next time I'm there. It's an "always" thing with me and colleges. I have to attend or teach, not just visit.
The program coordinator showed my proposed outline to the English department chair who thought it looked to be a good class. High praise, yes. But, again, this isn't my first rodeo. It's just a new horse. 😉
It just feels so good, my friends.
I've also continued to read Prewriting Your Screenplay by Michael Tabb, which has been a wealth of solid and usable information. Michael, one of my former professors, has an engaging voice and offers tremendous amounts of information with examples galore. Even if you don't write screenplays, get the book. His many chapters on character alone are a gold mine. I could teach an entire course just on characters. ...who knows, I may.
What would you like to see in a continuing education class on creative writing?
