What compels us to write about ourselves? What drives us to read about the lives of others? In this Master Class we 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.

I signed up for a class but can't make it. Can I be refunded?

No. Please be aware of our cancellation policy upon registration.
I'd like to transfer my registration to someone else. Is this possible?
