Hybrid Moments: Exploring the Lyric Essay [Sasha LaPointe]
All Levels | We live in a time that challenges the binary and explores intersection and identity. How do our stories of self become more realized when we break the constructs of traditional personal essay? In this class we will radicalize our approach to the personal narrative by intertwining poetry and personal memoir. We will write lyric essays, explore the braided form, and produce hybrid essays that celebrate both personal story and the lyricism of poetry. Come prepared to engage in fun and experimental writing exercises and share stories with one another.
