Home has become a fraught topic for some during this pandemic, and since the shelter-in order.
Home is where we’re from, & what & who we’re from. Where we’re from shapes us into who we are and who we become.
Toni Morrison once likened writers to the Mississippi River, which was redirected and often floods in its search for its original path. “Writers are like that: remembering where we were, what valley we ran through, what the banks were like, the light that was there and the route back to our original place. It is emotional memory—what the nerves and the skin remember as well as how it appeared. And a rush of imagination is our ‘flooding’.”
In this generative writing class, we will interrogate the power of place, and how we remember the places we’ve been and called home.
Home is location, emotion, people, and things.
Home IS story.
In this class, we will examine a variety of approaches to writing about home, and we will explore craft techniques that will make your writing come alive.
