Open to writers at all levels, “Against Silence” is a rigorous class that will help you pinpoint those particularly sticky and elusive subjects that you desperately want to write about, yet just haven’t figured out how. In this class you’ll figure it out. We will use generative prompts, some tailored to your specific work, some for the general class, and we will read short selections by memoir writers who drive their way into the dark heart and miraculously find their way out again. New work is due each week.
