Finding Your Genre [Megan Kruse]
Learn the bare bones of short fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry – then blur those lines to create something that suits your story. Come to class with an idea – an old family story, a personal experience, or something you’ve always imagined bringing to life on the page. We’ll discuss ways contemporary writers like Denis Johnson, Maya Angelou, Mark Richard, and Mary Karr have bent traditional forms in service of their content. You’ll leave with two takes on your story – and a sense of where to go from there.
