Creative Writing Workshops

Hi, my name is Jennifer Jeske. I am in my final semester of the Public Relations program here at GCC. I am currently in an internship with GCC’s Public Relations department. My duties as an intern here at school has allowed me the opportunity to post blogs on our website and share my thoughts.

I attended a Creative Writing workshop this month and wanted to share my experience with others through the website. I encourage students to go to as many of the free workshops we have on campus. This specific one was through the creative writing department. It allows students to share thoughts, create ideas, and critique at each other’s work. I interviewed students and instructors and even wrote my own poem during the workshop. I found it very enlightening.
