Our workplaces are fascinating reflections of the larger culture, plus the site of countless relationships, growth arcs, power struggles, and other dramas. Yet they're strangely underrepresented in modern memoir. Let's fix that! In this generative class, we'll pair close analysis of published writing about work with exercises designed to give you new angles for exploring and explaining that weird, inspiring, infuriating, complicated place (whether physical or virtual) where you spend so much time and energy. Students will leave with at least four new pieces of writing to further refine or develop later.
