How to Use This Course
Words and What to Do with Them is a nine-week writing course for aspiring writers. Instead of teaching students how to write, this course focuses on what you can do with what you have written. It starts out by asking the question, “Why do you want to write?” and concludes with a challenge to keep writing and make your words count.
In the words of Martin Luther, “If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.” That’s what this course is about—equipping and empowering you to pick up your pen, or sit down at your computer, and write to change the world. Words drive us. Why do you want to write? What do you want people to know? Together, we’ll look at foundational things about purpose and rejection and hard work, but then the ball will be in your court. This course will be what you make of it.
