This course explores writing that’s inspired and shaped by travels, displacement, immigration, and their connections to literature.
What’s the meaning of home in your writing? Do places you travel or choose to live have an imprint in your personality and your identity as an artist?
We will learn techniques from writers whose work and identity are shaped by a deep sense of place. We will write stories (memoir or fiction) inspired by the relationship between people, history, and geography. By the end, you'll be able to investigate how your identity as a writer is shaped by places you’ve visited or lived in.
LEVEL: All Levels
