Upcoming classes: Memoir
MONDAY, JULY 30 & THURSDAYS, AUGUST 9—30 | Do you have pages ready for workshop? This class is designed for students who have have taken the Work in Progress Workshop (or will have done so by end of July) or the equivalent. Please do not sign up unless you will have completed Work in Progress by the end of July, or unless you have written to me to make sure the class will meet your needs. If you are looking to generate pages, the first class (Work in Progress Workshop) is the one for you.→ READ MORE
THURSDAY, AUGUST 16 | We’ll read from the masters, Oliver Sacks and Joan Didion, and do our own generative short exercises to explore how to find points of entry into personal experiences of loss.
- All writing levels and genres welcome.
- The writing you create in the class will help kick start your writing process and give you tools for processing your grief.
- As a seriously ill patient as well as a caregiver for my mom, I channeled my grief into a book project and writing assignments (to help pay the bills and avoid going crazy) – often using humor.
