After high praise from students in the last offering of this class, we’re pleased to relaunch this class for our new term.
Healing, illness, caregiving. How can we write into these experiences? How can we gain the perspective we need to write? How can we talk about both clinical knowledge and profound emotions? How can we communicate personal experiences to others?
This generative workshop focuses on ways of communicating and understanding illness, healing, and care taking. Through activities and exercises specifically designed for writing into these experiences, we will explore different modes of writing. We will also look at published work for a greater depth of understanding and expression. You will leave the class with new writing, methods to inspire creative thinking, and revision strategies. We will seek to answer the question, “How can I find satisfaction and joy when writing about difficult, essential, and complex human experiences?”
Open to all genres of writing (fiction, memoir, poetry, theatre….)
Open all levels of writing experience.
