Politics and Prose: Tackling Social Justice Issues Through Fiction [Jennifer De Leon]
TIME UPDATE: This class will now run from 10 am – 1 pm PT. This has been updated from the print catalog.
All Levels | In a time of political upheaval, amidst a saturated media landscape, deeply imagined narratives of individual lives are more important than ever. In this session, we will explore the craft considerations in creating prose that gives a human face to charged political issues. How do writers depict the realities of place and time while maintaining allegiance to the desires and complexities of individual lives? How do we convey strongly held beliefs without becoming didactic and boring? Writers who are working on fiction about social issues are encouraged to bring in their work with opportunity for questions and discussion.
