Many of us write to make sense of the world and to wrestle with questions about our own histories, and the histories of our families and the places we come from. We write to process trauma, grief, isolation, dislocation, and disconnection. But what if we discover that so many of the stories we’ve been given about our bodies, ourselves, our homes, and our places in them don’t serve us? What if we discover that some of those stories were created to harm us? We’ll explore what sources we might draw from when the archive and media fail us, how we can interrogate, complicate, and challenge harmful dominant narratives, and how we can reclaim and remake our stories toward healing, self-love, and a reimagined world.

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