All Levels | How do we write about our intimates and remain honest, yet fair? How much to reveal? Can we publish this stuff with a clear conscience? Yes, it’s tricky. This class will address all these questions and more. Dipping into work by writers like Mary Karr, Patti Smith, Brian Dillon, and Ann Patchett, we’ll learn tools that help us stay faithful to the truth while serving our larger storytelling goals. You will leave with three new scenes for your memoir or essay.
