Writing Grief: a creative writing journey
Tuesdays, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
January 8, 2013 to March 12, 2013
at The Source, 1111 Carlisle Ave. SE, Albuquerque NM
Creative writing teachers Merimee Moffitt and Jennifer Simpson will companion students through 10 weeks of in- and out-of class writing exercises designed to turn the human experience of loss into a story or essay. We will also critique our in-progress work in class in a workshop format and we’ll use published essays and stories as models and inspiration, looking at specific aspects of craft including: image, characterization, plot, and building scenes with dialog, summary, and reflection.
Designed for writers of all levels.
Tuesdays, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, January 8 to March 12, 2013
at The Source for Creating Sacredness, 1111 Carlisle Ave. SE, Albuquerque, NM
A note–this is not intended to be a group therapy class, but rather a supportive space to WRITE about our grief, and craft those stories.
