Explore and Shelter: Writing About Place
Genres: Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry
Intermediate | Almost everyone has a previous place they’ve lived. Some have been many places, leaving footsteps and fingerprints all around. Let’s return to some of those vistas, doorways, and rooms, passing through again to find their important moments in your history. We’ll look at some fine examples and then generate new work. Expect to be surprised by how far your memory stretches.
