In this class you will plunge into the personal themes that make your real life stories uniquely yours. In the first half of this class, instructor Alison Luterman give you writing exercises carefully designed to elicit the undertones and overtones that elevate events and anecdotes into the realm of art. In the last half of class, Alison will guide you through workshopping and refining the pieces you have begun.
"This is the class where we get down, tell the truth, and lean in to listen closely to each other," explains Alison. "It’s intimate, fun, vulnerable and deep. Bus drivers sit next to PhDs; life coaches share their stories with former runaway teens. Everyone has a tale to tell, and it’s the job of our lives to excavate it fully. I look forward to hearing yours."
