Writing Yourself In

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

Octavia Butler said “you’ve got to write yourself in” when talking about the urgency of writing—but how do we really do this? This seminar draws inspiration from the work of Agnes Varda, a director known for turning the lens on herself while documenting the lives of others, to build a repertoire of approaches to incorporating our personal narratives into our fiction and nonfiction. We’ll watch film clips, read from published works, discuss the slipperiness of subjectivity and the ethics of representation, and respond to prompts to generate new work. Open to writers of all genres and levels of experience.
