Susanna Sonnenberg Against Silence: Finding Your Way into Memoir Non-Fiction October 24 to November 18, 2022 Tuition: $650.00 Class Size: 1 Session: fall Level: 4 week asynchronous workshop


Open to writers at all levels, “Against Silence” is a rigorous class that will help you pinpoint those particularly sticky and elusive subjects that you desperately want to write about, yet just haven’t figured out how. In this class you’ll figure it out. We will use generative prompts, some tailored to your specific work, some for the general class, and we will read short selections by memoir writers who drive their way into the dark heart and miraculously find their way out again. New work is due each week.


Susanna Sonnenberg is the author of two memoirs, Her Last Death and She Matters: A Life in Friendships, both published by Scribner and New York Times Bestsellers. Her creative personal nonfiction and reviews have appeared in a wide variety of magazines, newspapers, and anthologies. She teaches memoir and other writing classes online and in person from Missoula, Montana, where she has lived for 30 years.
