Young Adult Writing

with Daniel José Older

"This workshop will explore narrative structure, techniques for bringing prose to life, character development, and worldbuilding, all through the lens of Young Adult literature and the crisis of becoming an adult."

 

Essay

with Kiese Laymon

With the author of How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America

Pushing past rhetoric and polemics, this workshop develops the voice of the essayist and discusses strategies for thoughtful commentary and analysis. Working on every form of essay from the lyric to the editorial, the writers morph their ideas into vital insights.
