Writing About Death [Katherine Standefer]
All Levels | All humans die. To focus on this fundamental truth can be macabre — yet death exists hand in hand with some of our most powerful, precious, and beautiful experiences. In this six-week class, we’ll explore the craft of writing about death, noticing the narrative structures and syntax that effectively hold brutal experiences. We’ll draw on excerpts and essays from Audre Lorde, Jesmyn Ward, Eva Saulitis, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Emily Rapp Black. Participants will generate one new essay of their own.
