We will explore the role of the letter in literature--letters from writers; letters between writers; letters as poems and novels and essays. We will investigate how a letter can clarify and distill both voice and audience and how writing a letter might break open a project at just the right point or kickstart writing that has stalled. This is a generative workshop across genres.
NOTE: To protect everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic, we're offering our workshops via Zoom. All students must first sign up for a free Zoom account. Setting it up is easy. And we can help you with questions, if needed. For each class, you'll receive a Zoom "invitation," from the instructor. Click the link...follow the simple directions about the settings for your microphone and in-computer video, and you're immediately in the "room" for the workshop. For critique workshops, instructors will communicate with students about the process of sharing work. For more generative workshops, students will be writing together while on Zoom.
