THURSDAYS, OCT. 15 — NOV. 19 | Everyone has a story to tell. Tell yours in 2020 with Writing From Your Life, an asynchronous six-week workshop that will teach you the nuts and bolts of writing personal essay and memoir. You’ll read passages from the masters, do weekly craft exercises, and submit longer pieces of your work to be critiqued by the whole class. Don’t miss this opportunity to turn your life stories into completed drafts of literature. (Writing will be critiqued on the Wet Ink platform with an optional Zoom workshop every Thursday.)
Asynchronous learning materials for this class will be available online (via the Wet Ink platform). Scheduled class sessions will take place via Zoom. Registered students, please contact the instructor directly for Zoom details
