I’m excited to be teaching my next online non fiction course with the University of King’s College called, Writing About Hard Things.
Good creative nonfiction doesn’t shy away from hard topics, yet with that responsibility comes a lot of challenges for the writer. From legal issues to relationships, emotional cost and self-care, how do writers sit in the trenches of difficult work while being true to story and honesty?
This course will examine how we write about hard topics, from traumas to conflicts, all while protecting and balancing the author’s wellbeing, relationships, and art form. Students will workshop their own pieces in class while learning about how to use the writer’s tools for effective storytelling, even when those stories are difficult to share. This class will be a supportive, caring environment in which to explore and create without judgement.
You can register for the course here, which runs Tuesdays from 630-9 Atlantic time!
