This 4-week workshop takes place Tue, Nov 7, 14, 28, Dec 5.

How do your particular experiences and unique perspectives on desire, hurt, pleasure, and intimate moments materialize on the page? In this class, we will look at memoirs, essays, prose, poetry, and visual art to help you craft compelling lyric essays out of personal history and spaces. Our focus together will be on generating and revising resonant works of memoir. Participants are welcome to bring works-in-progress or come “fresh.”
