This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | This class will illuminate the landscapes and dwellings we inhabit and how they inform our personal narratives. Whether you’re from another country, have lived in one house forever, or you relocate often, we’ll explore the notion of home and why our writing draws us back to geographies that have shaped us, changed us. Place can also offer you structure and form. We will be working from Zoom, so collective group time will be balanced with writing time and private conferences. You will leave with three new scenes and new grounding for your memoir. Expect surprise.
