With Susan Christerson Brown 

Looking Inward/Writing Outward is grounded in the belief that writers have a calling, to tell the truth of their experiences. This creative nonfiction class offers practices in mining personal stories and developing short works, such as personal essays and stories, and longer works, such as memoirs. This class incorporates daily journaling, weekly writing exercises, practical ways to explore life’s threads, graphic organizers, and memory devices.  [ALL LEVELS]
