4-Week: Reading as a Writer—Sigrid Nunez's The Friend

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

Sigrid Nunez’s award-winning novel takes on grief, the writing life, and human-canine relationships, all topics that can be hard to pull off. Yet Nunez rises to the challenge, employing autofiction, intertextuality, contemplation, and metafiction to dazzling effect. What can we learn from this sharp, aching book? Through reading, discussion, and exercises, we'll explore what The Friend can bring to our writing. Participants who are able should read parts one and two (pages 1 to 51) before the first class.

Please note that our four-week workshops do not include formal critiques, though there may be opportunities for informal sharing. If you’d like your work critiqued in depth, please see the 8-week workshop listings.
