In this workshop Stockton Creative Writing Faculty Professors King and Long will guide participants through a variety of accessible and diverse creative writing exercises for the classroom, allowing participants to test out the writing prompts first hand. The workshop will discuss ways to alter the lessons according to individual classroom needs and offer ways these assignments can be scaffolded towards larger projects. We will also review potential pitfalls and answer questions about each exercise.
