Getting Over Your Fear of Going Dark [Ann Hedreen]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | “What do we do with knowledge that we cannot bear to live with?” writes Deborah Levy. “What do we do with the things we don’t want to know?” For writers of memoir, these questions often are both the very reason for writing and the greatest barrier to writing. We want and need to tell our stories. But we’re scared of what will happen when we tell them: to us, to our readers, and to the people we love. In this three-hour seminar, we’ll focus on how to do the writing we fear the most. We’ll look at examples, then do 2-3 short sessions of in-class writing.
