TUESDAYS, APRIL 30 —MAY 28 | We all deal with the big issues in life–birth, love, sex, money, death–in different ways. Fiction and essays are about exploring our own unique perspective on these universal experiences. In this generative class we will read essays, short stories and poems on these themes. Then I will give you prompts to respond to and we will discuss your writing. The inspiration to write comes from grappling with life and exploring our own path through our words.
Jenny Bitner’s short stories, poetry and flash fiction have been published in anthologies and literary magazines including Best American Nonrequired Reading, Writing That Risks, The Fabulist, PANK, The Sun, Mississippi Review and Fence magazines. She has an M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Virginia. She is also a hypnotherapist and writing coach.
