Your creativity is a muscle like any other, and the only way to strengthen it, is through exercise. Josh Langston, bestselling novelist, editor, and long-time ELM instructor firmly believes this and will once again lead a class of students on a quest for new ideas and new ways to express them.
There will be writing prompts each week, and students will be asked to share what they dream up. Don’t be surprised to find yourself writing about things you’ve never dreamed of before, because that’s what it’s all about.
Josh’s classes are definitely not like any you took in high school or college. The emphasis is on fun. His mantra is quite simple: “Thou shall not be boring!”
In addition to giving helpful hints on polishing your prose, Josh will share writing tips and techniques gleaned over his lengthy writing and publishing career. The author of over two dozen novels, textbooks, and short story collections, Josh truly knows whereof he speaks. Many of his students have gone on to write their own novels, essay collections, and memoirs.
What better time to roll up your sleeves and do something creative? Stimulate your mind through your imagination, and join in the comradery of fellow wordsmiths.
C’mon in; the water’s fine! Let’s make stuff up!
Josh Langston’s fiction has been published in a variety of magazines and anthologies, and both his Christmas and Western short story collections have reached the Amazon top 20 for genre fiction. His many novels are split between historical fiction and, with the exception of two titles, contemporary fantasy.
Josh also loves to teach. His classes on novel writing, memoir, and independent publishing are filled with students eager to learn and have their work perused by a pro. His textbooks on the craft of fiction, memoir, and novel writing provide a humorous and easy-to-understand approach to the subjects while imparting valuable tips and techniques. Naked Notes! is the fourth title in his textbook series and was released in 2018.
