On Urgency: A Memoir and Creative Nonfiction Workshop – LIVE via ZOOM: 1pm-4pm (Eastern) on June 27th.

Together, we’ll discuss four very short passages from Hilton Als, Carmen Maria Machado, Hanif Abdurraqib, and Victoria Chang. Following each discussion we’ll complete a quick writing prompt suggested by each passage. After writing, there will be time to share the work with either a breakout group or the group as a whole.
