Designed for both beginning writers and those looking to reconnect to their creative selves, this course will explore how writing can help us connect to our past, our present, and deeper questions of self. Each week will feature a new prompt to ignite the imagination, as well as outside examples of poetry, memoir, and creative nonfiction. Participants will have the chance to share and receive supportive feedback on their own creative work.

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this {article, book, exhibition, film, program, database, report, Web resource}, do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Humanities North Dakota. However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally. Therefore our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University. To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
