This class has already happened.
Award-winning author and contributing editor to A Public Space Yiyun Li joins A Public Space Academy for a Master Class on autobiographical writing.
This intensive, three-hour course will ask: What compels us to write about ourselves? What drives us to read about the lives of others? It will examine different approaches to writing about the people, places, and events that have made us who and how we are; and gather assets of writerly tools to write about our experiences and our perceptions of the world around us.

Where are the Master Classes and workshops located?
Currently, all Master Classes and workshops are held online on Zoom.
I registered but did not receive a link. What do I do?
Can I receive a recording of a past or upcoming workshop or class?
No. The only way to attend a Master Class or workshop is live.
Is closed captioning available?
Yes. Otter.ai live notes are available for all Master Classes, and on a case-by-case basis for workshops. (If you are signed up for a workshop, please discuss closed captioning with your instructor.) To view the notes, look for the red LIVE dropdown menu in the top left of your Zoom screen and select View Stream on Otter.ai.
Are scholarships available?
The Master Class or workshop I want to join is sold out. Is there a waitlist?
I signed up for a class but can't make it. Can I be refunded?
But I signed up for a class after the cut-off point for a full refund had passed. Can I still be eligible for a full refund?
No. Please be aware of our cancellation policy upon registration.
I'd like to transfer my registration to someone else. Is this possible?
If you need to cancel your enrollment in an Academy class, please let us know as soon as possible. We can only offer full refunds if you cancel two weeks prior to the start of class. After that, before the start date of class, we can offer a 50% refund. We cannot refund day-of cancellations, and we cannot refund or partially refund tuition once the class has begun.
