An Autumn Writing Workshop
(Beginning Monday September 9, 6 pm) in Jackson Heights, Queens
Topic: Autobiography: how do we create art from the personal without lapsing into the confessional, touchy-feely, sentimental.
We'll read short stories by James Joyce, works by Gertrude Stein, Bernadette Mayer's Midwinter Day, and others.
Projects will include research on the neighbor you hated as a kid, google map poems of places you've lived, and new angles on the tribute to the dead grandmother.
Open to poets, fiction writers, musicians, filmmakers, visual artists.
Limit eight students, 10 weeks, $300. Reserve a spot today!
