Brain Trust: Writing about the Brain [Ann Hedreen]

This class is for memoir/nonfiction writers who have a story to tell that has something to do with the brain: either the writer’s own or that of someone he or she loves or both. We’ll use passages by authors who’ve traveled this terrain as well as in-class prompts and at-home assignments to get the flow going. As we read and write, we will focus on metaphor, reflection, selection of detail, richness of voice, and how these elements can be deployed in writing about the brain.
