Pleasure, Illness, and Memory: The Art of Embodied Writing, with Arya Samuelson
So often as writers, we are hindered by abstraction, a step or two removed from the experiences and feelings we are trying to convey. In this 6-week workshop, we’ll explore the art and process of embodied writing, both on the page and as a way to put together a larger story. Through generative in-class practice, weekly craft readings, and regular assignments, we’ll learn how to inhabit vivid, sensory scenes, how to write trauma and dissociation, and how to bring the reader more fully and sensually into our work.
Tuesdays, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. EST; 6-week session begins March 21st ($325)
