Let’s Build a House
Are you fascinated by houses and what goes on inside them? In this class, we will survey depictions of homes in literature while considering how rooms can work in our writing. This generative class will help build domestic spaces in your work, whether you're working on scenes for a novel or personal spaces in memoir. Expect discussion of a wide range of texts, in-class generation, and to leave class with blueprints for essays, short stories, and scenes.
