Owning the Nasty: Writing the Personal Sex Essay [Katherine Standefer]
Intermediate | How do we make meaning from our sexual experiences? What do our personal stories have to offer the world, and what is the best way to share them? In this bawdy and introspective intensive, writers will work to build strong connective tissue between their own sexual stories and larger questions about sex that our culture is grappling with. Participants will explore their histories through unconventional exercises and discuss the craft of authors like Cheryl Strayed, Silas Hansen, and Lidia Yuknavitch. This class has a lunch break.
