Women in Regional Nonfiction Literature – Fall 2021

This one-hour, every-other-week class will survey nonfiction works by women-identifying writers in Kentucky and central Appalachia. Participants will read work from bell hooks, Nikky Finney, and others, exploring, with them, through in-class discussion and writing prompts, the
ways intersecting identities shape the women in our own writing.

Hannah D. Markley is a freelance writer and educator, and her current creative writing projects include explorations of her family’s matriarchs, migration patterns, and the relationship between place and belonging.

This classes meets every other week: Mondays, September 13 & 27; October 11 & 25; November 8 & 22; & December 6.
