Fiction & Nonfiction Workshop

Sarah Schulman WEEK 6: July 12 to July 16 TUITION: $550 WORKSHOP: 10am-12pm DISCIPLINE: Multi-Genre OPEN TO ALL ON-SITE HOUSING AVAILABLE

A craft-based workshop for fiction and non-fiction writers on ALL levels: from true beginner to the multiply published, working on witnessing our extraordinary time, expressing the experience of living now in the context of others, and representing these experiences through the eyes of people who are often ignored or distorted in mainstream media. All are truly welcome, but especially people looking to write prose that transcends racial and cultural clich├ęs, that looks complexly at queer and trans experiences with nuance, and that addresses the current and ongoing expressions of people with HIV, and children and survivors of the epidemic. Please note computer cameras are required to be on during class time, with accommodations made if there is a disability issue.
