Brave Writing: Facing Common Fears to Tell Your Story with Courage and Dignity – Summer 2021

Telling our personal stories is one of the most vital ways to communicate our shared humanity and vulnerabilities, but sometimes writers experience debilitating fears before the work even begins. We’ll look at some of the fears writers of personal essays and memoir face, explore the resources and tools needed to make us bold, brave, creative nonfiction writers. For all levels.

Claudia Love Mair is a writing teacher and the Coordinator of the Kentucky Black Writer’s Collaborative. She holds an MFA from Spalding University.
