ONLINE: The Tough Stuff: Healing Through Writing

This class is for the conversations that still need to happen. We’ll talk about the barriers that keep us from writing what we need to write. We’ll also examine works by Chanel Miller, Jeannette Walls, and Layli Long Soldier to take lessons from the ways in which they make difficult topics easier to access. Students will have their chance to write, read their work aloud in class, and receive supportive feedback.
