Course Description

IN PERSON: Everyone experiences loss in their lifetime. You may be grieving the loss of a loved one or feel sad about losing an object of sentimental value. Sometimes loss is about missed opportunities in life or having grown up in a difficult family situation. Writing about the experience can be a source of healing. Your own story may surprise you with elements of joy and humor in addition to sadness and anger. Writing provides the opportunity to explore and create one’s own narrative. Classes will include some in-class writing prompts, though the focus will be on students’ stories. Students will also provide suggestions for strengthening one another’s writing; focusing on imagery and storytelling. Also, we will strive to simply listen and provide a caring environment. The written stories, when possible, will be shared via email. This allows time for students to prepare helpful and considerate comments about each other’s work. The instructor will also offer comments and send them to students. | Facilitated discussion.

Max enrollment: 10.
