Belonging: The Landscape Of Home

Especially in times of upheaval, we seek refuge in what we call home, a place of belonging. Maybe it’s missing the country you had to flee, or that sailboat you loved. Or during the pandemic, discovering that your house is no longer home. In this class, we'll write the stories you thought you’d forgotten. We will discuss scene and the power of reflection. You'll leave with work that reflects a new writing landscape, a new home.

Christine Hemp


A chapter of Christine Hemp’s memoir, Wild Ride Home, was recently published in The New York Times. Her poems and essays have also appeared in, Iowa Review, Psychology Today, and on NPR. She believes that to write well, we must live well, not in terms of "professional success" or achieving the "perfect" essay. story, or poem, but in how we embrace the unfamiliar, the uncomfortable, and the ecstatic. Only then can we offer our readers the truths they thirst for.
