You’re a rebel, write like one.
“Creativity is an act of defiance.” –Twlya Tharp
Are you ready to get raw?
Do you rebel against the status quo?
Do you struggle with the idea there are literary rules?
Do you think conforming is boring?
Do you believe different is good?
These courses are here to help you to find your voice and the confidence to use it.
Rebels, we get a bad wrap but we are the ones that change the world. We start things. We raise our voices. We are tough SOBs, standing up for the quiet voices or voiceless. We bring the volume. We aren’t in it to play it safe. We want to create, even at the risk of a loss, because we decide what the future is for us, not someone else.
There is nothing wrong with writing books that follow the rules, that play it safe…but why not take a chance and write what you really want to write about. Say what really needs saying. Maybe you want to write a novel that asks for a call to action against climate change or gun violence in schools. Maybe you want to write taboo erotica. Maybe you want to write a story using only gender-neutral pronouns. Maybe you want to write a book that will become a banned book. These courses are here to lead you down the Rebel Writing path.
What scares you about sharing your story?
Have you been writing for years and you seek inspiration? Are you new to creative writing but don’t want a traditional 101 class? These courses will motivate you to pick up your pen and write the words that demand to be released.
You do not have to follow the rules to create meaningful work and find success.
“Create dangerously, for people who read dangerously…Writing, knowing in part that no matter how trivial your words may seem, someday, somewhere, someone may risk his or her life to read them.” – Edwidge Danticat
