Event description

Description

In this online writing workshop, we'll do short readings and exercises in class designed to loosen us up, access our creativity and writing voices, and jumpstart a writing practice. Toward the end of the class, each participant will share a short personal essay or a portfolio of vignettes that has emerged from our in-class exercises, beginning to shape the material that emerged in the class into a short collection of micro-essays or one longer essay that weaves these "flash" pieces together. Our theme will be"writing spaces," allowing us to examine the intersections among life stories, memory, the body, and place (home, rooms, towns, spaces dreamed or imagined). We will read excerpts by some of the following writers, and produce our own writing inspired by them: Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Lynda Barry, Claudia Rankine, Gaston Bachelard, Brian Doyle, Sherman Alexie, JoAnn Beard.
