Sex, Death, Laughter, Disease: Writing and the Body
Being human, our bodies mediate our experience.  In this eight-week course, we will look at the ways embodied experience is communicated and crafted in poetry, fiction, and memoir.  We will read short pieces in which writers have taken the body as their subject: its abilities, its pleasures, its failures and its humiliations.  We'll do writing exercises that expand our physical vocabulary, sharpen our skills of observation, and take a closer look at the daily difficulties and joys of the corporeal.  Finally, we'll work on critique and revision in weekly workshops that strengthen our practice as writers and as readers.  This class is open to writers of any experience level.

Classes will meet eight Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 10:00, starting September 24th. Total cost, including materials, is $295 if you sign up before August 31st, or $325 between August 31st and September 24th.
