Queering Creative Nonfiction

In light of Clarence Thomas’ concurrence in Dobbs, queer people across the U.S. have taken steps to shore up their rights as spouses and parents. In this class, as queer creative nonfiction writers, we will take steps to queer our personal essays about family. Students will generate and share their own new nonfiction that spotlights the uniquely queer aspects of familial intimacy. Students can expect to come away with a new personal essay or chapter for a memoir.
