Writing the Gorgeous Shipwreck of Middle Age [Gabriela Denise Frank]
Intermediate | If middle age was a Brady, it’d be Jan: at turns invisible, daring, envious, faltering—and funny. Approached with intention, writing about one’s midlife experience can be a keen lens for revelation and purpose. We’ll write from in-class prompts and discuss readings that explore middle age with humor and thoughtfulness. We’ll plumb its shuddering complexities, hard-won wisdom, and delectable triumphs. Writers will develop a collection of new flash starts or a segmented work and will have the option for an instructor conference.
