Online Class | Counterplots: At War with Stories of Shame

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

All Levels | In this class, we’ll discuss the psychology of the counterplot — a story plot that originates from the agency of the author, as opposed to from an internalized source of guilt or shame. Working to push back against reductive, shame-based narratives, we’ll gain skills to aim our writing toward personal empowerment. The goal of our time together will be to create pieces in which we’re the protagonists in our own stories.
