All Levels | Sometimes you have a story to tell, and you don’t know yet the genre in which it wants to be told. In this craft-focused class, we will read fiction, essays, autofiction, and memoir from around the globe. We will generate fresh writing, discuss roadblocks, find pathways, and workshop your pages as you work with the support of a cohort. You will find your voice, your story, your form. Sonora Jha draws on her experience as a novelist, an essayist, a memoirist, and a journalist to design exercises and writing prompts that work for your chosen genre. Get ready to spark both memory and imagination as you craft a compelling voice, unforgettable characters, vivid story arcs, distinct points of view, and complex narrative tension to write the story that is uniquely yours to tell. Expect to leave with a draft of a book or a strong revision.
