Online | Your Obsession is Your Muse: Don’t Fight It, Write It! [Steve Almond]

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

Most good writing—whether fiction or nonfiction—arises from a writer’s obsessions. In this intensive session, we’ll discuss how to explore our obsessions on the page, without falling prey to self-absorption or sentiment. We’ll start by looking at the work of folks such as Joan Didion, George Saunders, and others, and then generate some work in class by confessing to our own obsessions. Check your inhibitions at the door.
