There's no shortage of reasons to write from anger these days: racial injustice, climate-change heedlessness, political mendacity, not to mention the quieter and more personal wounds. But how do we transform our fury into compelling and coherent writing, transforming a screed into a crafted cri de coeur? In this eight-week course, we'll read examples of work by authors who have tapped into that special alchemy. (In previous versions of this class, we’ve delved into Joy Williams, James Baldwin, Larry Kramer, Audre Lorde.) We’ll workshop pieces approximately 500-2500 words.

This course includes in-class exercises, engaged consideration of handouts, and opportunities to workshop pieces with in-class feedback from peers and written feedback from the instructor. All levels welcome.
