Rage Is a Red Lesson: How to Turn Anger into Charged Prose

All Levels | We’re living in an age of wrath, one in which the impulse to make art is being shouted down by the desire to make war. In this freewheeling workshop, we’ll examine how writers are able to harness their anger and use it as an engine for their stories. We’ll look at the work of masters such as Claire Messud and Herman Melville, and use an in-class exercise to examine the sorrows that lurk beneath the armor of our anger.
