The Art of Confession [Melissa Febos]

All Levels | As a literary term first used to describe the intimate works of poets, confessional has since been used to diminish works with autobiographical elements. This seminar won’t argue with that shallow application of the word. Instead, we will investigate the radical power and possibilities of personal writing: the aesthetic process of transforming experience into meaning via art, its analogous relationships between spiritual rituals of confession and trauma recovery, and its potential to transform the self and society.
