Writing People, Writing Place

Writing the world around us opens a lens to the world of ourselves.

In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to write people— how are characters formed, what makes them work, what’s at stake, what choices and risks might they take— and consider how we might most effectively bring characters to life within and on the page. We’ll also think about how to make meaning of place, using the environment around us as a way to begin our exploration, but will also consider the landscape of memory in our explorations. 

This class will work across genres as a way to write beyond, and within, ourselves and the lenses we bring into our experiences.
