Mind in Motion: Reading and Writing Contemporary Essays [Anne Liu Kellor]
Conversational. Lyrical. Paradoxical. Political. Quirky. Passionate. Intelligent. Compassionate. In this workshop, we will read and discuss the works of popular essayists such as Rebecca Solnit, Megan Stielstra, Roxane Gay, Charles D’Ambrosio, and Leslie Jamison. Each week we will examine the diverse range of voices, styles, ideas, and structures present in this dynamic form, as well as free-write from in-class prompts designed to help us explore our own questions, contradictions, and meandering paths of the mind.
