Dreams (both achieved and unfulfilled) have powered the writings of authors from ancient Greece to the present day. Dreams about conquering nature, being respected, or even winning the lottery have given authors memorable characters and limitless storylines. In this course, you will sample some of these storylines. You will also get to create some dreams and stories of your own.
In addition to evaluating the plot and characters of well-known writers, you will learn to identify themes, create dialogue, and appeal to emotions. You will study various forms of communication including: oral, visual, electronic and textual. You will also develop your own ability to communicate dreams and aspirations with conviction.
Great authors have something to say and the ability to say it well. This course will show you how they do it, and will invite you to do the same.
