Family Matters

All Levels | We love them, we hate them, they drive us crazy, we can’t live without them. What would life (and fiction) be without family relations? We’ll look at what makes a ‘family’ story, why writing focused on family proves so eternally compelling, and how to locate the universal within our own unique family stories. Expect in-class exercises and tips for navigating difficult conversations at Thanksgiving.
