All Levels | How has being othered affected your life, your thoughts, your words? This class is dedicated to the lives and issues of queer writers and/or writers of color, past and present, working in prose—from fiction to essays to graphic novels. We will discuss how the writer’s queerness and/or race affected their writing, their lives, publication, and acknowledgment. What themes arise amongst these writers? Additionally, we’ll spend a portion of class critiquing your own work through a weekly workshop.
This course takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be done at your own pace throughout the week.
