Description

This class is part of our “Summer Creative Nonfiction Series,” a variety of single-session classes on Tuesday evenings designed to tackle one element of creative nonfiction writing in each class. You can take one class, pick and choose, or take all of them! You can find all other classes in the series here.


Writing great nonfiction means doing what Mary Oliver calls, “letting the soft animal of your body love what it loves.” In this session we’ll talk about how scary it is to put our hearts on the page, discuss what that might look like, and do a little heart exposure of our own. We’ll turn to some nonfiction masters for inspiration, and get you ready to do the business of being braver with your writing.

  • Whole class workshopping of student work
  •  In-class peer feedback
  • In-class verbal instructor feedback
  • Optional sharing of student work in class
  • In-class writing exercises
  • Generative exercises
