Advanced Weeklong Nonfiction Workshop: My Little World with Michelle Tea

$1,180.00 Members
$1,330.00 Non-members

Tuition includes an orientation before class starts, five workshop sessions, a one-on-one meeting with the instructor, breakfast and coffee on workshop days, all lunchtime business panels, tickets to the opening and closing parties, a digital one-year subscription to The Sun magazine, and discounted rates at local hotels. 

This workshop is for writers looking to build essays that grow from personal experience, from thought, feeling, and memory. We’ll investigate essays that do the trick of immersing ourselves in a writer’s life and perspective and which take risks around vulnerability and truth-telling. Emphasis will be placed both on the craft of personal essays – tricks and practices that benefit writing (and editing) in all genres – as well as practices that assist with the particular challenges of writing from one’s own life. We’ll discuss and problem-solve issues of vulnerability, shame and other people, as well as get into the incontestable power in claiming your own story, and find ways to link our private worlds to the larger world we’re all part of. Writers will support and help one another through the sharing of work in-class.

Accepted participants will submit up to 20 pages by May 15 and will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Michelle during the week of class.
