I’ll be teaching the 2nd round of this class at Hugo House starting October 1st and running for 6 weeks. I’d love to see you there. Please register soon. Here’s a little preview of the course.
By focusing on the craft of writing, we can transform personal experience into art. Readings will include excerpts from: Poetry in Medicine, The Healing Art: A Doctor’s Black Bag of Poetry, Poetry As Survival, and Beauty Is a Verb, as well as the work of Alicia Ostriker, Lucia Perillo, Susan Sontag, Lucille Clifton, Anatole Broyard, and Kevin Young, among others. Each week there will be readings, discussion, and writing prompts. There will be time to receive feedback after the first class.
We’ll also read some short prose pieces and excerpts from longer creative, non-fiction.
Feel free to pass this information on to whomever might be interested.
