Writing About Loss

All Levels | In this class, we’ll use literature as a lens through which to explore how losses play out in individual lives and the lives of communities. We’ll turn a curious eye on how writers choose to represent grief, which can feel like an experience too big to be contained in language, and we’ll explore a variety of stylistic and formal possibilities as we write, share, and revise our own narratives of loss (whether large or small) in a supportive workshop setting.
