Writing About Illness, Health & Healing [Janet Buttenwieser]
All Levels. Most of us have experienced illness on some level: acute, chronic, physical, mental. We may have taken care of a loved one when they got sick. If writing nonfiction is an exercise in sense-making, how do we make sense of our illnesses on the page? In this class, we will look at published examples of flash nonfiction with a focus on illness and health, and write some flash nonfiction of our own.
