Paul Lisicky Wildness & Intuition: A Workshop in Memoir/Narrative Nonfiction August 12 to August 17, 2018 Tuition: $600 Workshop: 9am-Noon Discipline: Nonfiction/Memoir OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options

In this generative class we’ll learn to respect our wildness and intuition in terms of how we make choices in memoir and narrative nonfiction. We’ll do that through both close readings of outside work and a sequence of in-class writing projects, which we’ll talk about in depth on our last two days. The only prerequisites are a sense of play and a willingness to question—and even break up—our old ways of thinking. We will make this about hope.


Paul Lisicky’s books include Later: My Life at the Edge of the World, The Narrow Door, Unbuilt Projects, and Lawnboy. His work has appeared in The Atlantic, Conjunctions, The Cut, Fence, The New York Times, and elsewhere. His awards include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Fine Arts Work Center. He directs the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Rutgers University-Camden, where he is editor of StoryQuarterly. His seventh book, The Sky in It: A Life with Joni Mitchell, is forthcoming from HarperOne.
