Making Sense of Memory

All Levels |In writing about the past, we often explain rather than let our senses reveal long-lost moments: that diesel smell of a school bus; the calluses on your father’s hands; jeans ticking in the dryer; or (thank you, Proust) the flavor of a simple cookie. Blake reminds us that our senses are the “doors to perception.” Using poems, stories, and memoir shards as guides, we’ll mine our deeper, visceral truths. You’ll leave with new work, more confidence, and a better understanding of the story you need to tell. Prepare for adventure.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
