ONLINE: What We Save: Writing About Objects We Prize
Fire, flood, hurricane, quarantine, even downsizing, evict you from home. What precious object must you save? In this class, students will explore memory and understanding using such chosen objects. Exercises and prompts will help them look more deeply. Writing and reflection will tap feeling and memory, layering them into fiction or nonfiction that brings the objects, and their worlds, alive.
