A Double Life
This Master Class explores the idea of writing as akin to leading a double life in which real memories and fictional memories come together as one in a writer’s imagination. What does it mean to carry around a fictional version of oneself as well as an original version? When writing fiction about events that actually happened, what changes during the transition from memory to page? Using the concept of the doppelgänger as a starting metaphor, we’ll play with the line between fact and fiction and look at ways a writer derives power from the transformation.

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.
