On Writing Grief
In this class, we will explore ways to write experiences of grief, particularly our own. Which structures are best to hold what we have to say? How does fictionalizing a close experience of grief affect the way it is received and how we write it? We will explore concepts of sentimentality and reader resistance. We’ll consider how sound, sentence structure, and story building can all be used to communicate feeling. Together we will read very short selections from a variety of genres, and we will share, when comfortable, sections of our own writing with each other.
