Space, Place, + Identity: Creative Nonfiction (only offered a few times a year)

In this workshop, we’ll write about where we’re from, where we’ve been, and where we hope to go in the future. We’ll generate essays about one’s hometown or region, travel or exploration, and the changed geography of our lives during the pandemic. Part workshop, part craft discussion, part generative space. You will write four short essays by the end of the class.
