All Levels | Whether you’re working on a memoir or a long essay, this will help you find a fresh way to frame your narrative. Like a Rothko painting with several bandwidths of color, your book or essay can possess more than one story and resonate beyond your original intention. We will cover braiding, urgency, and narrative delay. This course is for anyone struggling with structure. Each participant will leave with a new draft of a chapter or essay.
Christine Hemp has aired her essays and poems on NPR’s Morning Edition, and a poem of hers has traveled over a billion miles on a NASA mission to monitor the prenatal activity of stars.

She is on the 2019-20 Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau with her talk “From Homer to #hashtags,” which explores our changing language. Her forthcoming memoir, Wild Ride Home, is scheduled for publication in Spring 2020. She lives in Port Townsend, Washington with two horses, two cats, and one husband.
