Writing from the Body and Memory [Anastacia-Renee]
Use your body and memory as the catalyst for three pieces. Through a mesh of body movement, brainstorm, and memory, we will create a new prose form as a class. Before class begins, students will submit one short memory from the body. We’ll examine work from writers such as Eve Ensler, Jericho Brown, Lucille Clifton, and others who use the body as a substructure for their writing. On the last day of class, we’ll workshop pieces anonymously. Bring your body, memory, and creativity.
