Leslie Jamison: Master Class

Brooklyn, NY Wednesday, April 17

This master class will examine how we write from and about places that are charged with emotion—landscapes both remembered and imagined. We’ll be exploring how place can serve not only as a launching-off point for narratives but as a way to structure and interrogate our emotional experiences. In addition to discussing two published pieces of writing, we’ll be examining various literary maps, generating maps of our own, and writing flash essays that use those maps as portals.

Leslie Jamison is the author of The Gin Closet (Free Press), The Empathy Exams (Graywolf), and The Recovering: Intoxication and Its Aftermath (Little, Brown).
