What you'll learn in this writing class:

Imagine writing about a personal subject you’ve never really been able to deal with before, overcoming whatever emotional barriers you’ve previously encountered. This six week class provides the private space and opportunity to explore our most intimate feelings about our most important subjects. The journal form frees us from our more self-conscious ambitions — imagine using such literary personalities and masks as Kafka, Peter Handke, Virginia Woolf, Dostoevsky or any of our more contemporary poets and writers as a lens through which to view our own lives and subject matters.

The format for this workshop will be a virtual Google Meet class room, all critiques and feedback will be completed live in the virtual meet up with the full class. It is highly recommended that writers signing up for this workshop have previous exposure to the Writers Studio approach to persona, and attended Writers Studio Craft Classes. However, potential journal exercise material and readings will be provided in advance of the first class, and time will be provided in each class to discuss and explore approaches for journal exercises each week.
