Writing Addiction [Kristi Coulter]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | Stories of addiction and recovery often follow a familiar fall-and-rise template that’s true in broad form but lacks the specific, nonconforming details and quirks of voice that make stories authentic and memorable. In this class, we’ll look at work from writers who have pushed past standard themes and language to tell addiction stories only they could tell, and we’ll generate new work of our own. Expect a playful, supportive, and craft-focused approach. (And a big-tent definition of addiction/recovery — substances, sex, gambling, you name it.)
