Fall, 2018: PROSE
OCTOBER 16 to DECEMBER 4
Tuesday Evenings, 6:00 to 9:00pm, Caetani Library
Classes will be a mixture of discussions about contemporary composition in prose, demonstrations concerning both writing and editing and finding the right shapes for fiction or memoir or non-fiction, and critiquing sessions that will focus on class members’ work.
Because I am helplessly addicted to reading contemporary literature, my hope is that every member of this class will be refining skills that are current, professional and aimed at seeking an audience.
This is the ideal class for writers who are working away on her or his own and could use the support of a focused and professional community of writers, especially if she or he is in the middle of a manuscript. I am just re-engaging on the writing of a large novel myself called, tentatively, The Kitchen Sessions, and because of that, teaching this class will be timely for me as it will force me to articulate the kinds of compositions I am re-engaging in.
