Melissa Febos’ Girlhood: Writing Against Patriarchy [Kaelie Giffel]

Intermediate | Each week, we’ll read an essay from Melissa Febos’s new memoir-in-essays, Girlhood, and use her work as a basis for drafting our own essays about experiences of gender, sexuality, and embodiment. We’ll focus on how she uses writing as an anti-patriarchal tool, a tool for self-revision. We’ll use free-writing, imitation exercises, interviews, and revision exercises to draft a personal essay.
