Via both regular in-class writing exercises and reading discussions, this online course offers a comprehensive overview on how to build and sustain a writing practice. The Elements of Creative Writing is designed to help novice writers appreciate how writing is both art and craft and to give more experienced writers an opportunity to continue to hone and master essential skills. Participants will have ample opportunities to generate new writing and to participate in group critique. Please note: This course is a prerequisite for many of our other offerings.


Sha-shonda Porter has earned a Ph.D in Interdisciplinary Studies, Humanities and Culture; an MFA in Creative Writing; and a BA in Writing Literature. Over the past ten years of her diverse experience, she has taught in a variety of academic settings, including on-campus, online, and low-residency. She currently serves as Associate Dean of World Languages, Cultures, and Communications at Richland College.
