Writing About the Women in Your Family [Darien Hsu Gee]
Second Section: We will be offering another session of this course in Summer 2021.
All Levels | Who are the women in your family? What stories need to be told? How have these women helped you claim your place in the world, or what secrets might still be holding you back? We’ll explore the roles of these women in our lives and how they’ve shaped us. During class, we’ll use prompts to generate micro narratives (300 words or less) and prose poems, discussing how the movement between these two forms can strengthen the story you are trying to tell. Finally, we’ll consider how these pieces may be submitted individually or organized as part of a chapbook, memoir, or more extensive body of work.
