Yiyun Li: Writing About Ourselves


Wednesday, July 11 | Master Class A Public Space, 323 Dean Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217

Award-winning author and contributing editor to A Public Space Yiyun Li joins A Public Space Academy for a three-hour 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.

To register, please visit the Academy section in our online store. If you have any questions, or would like any additional information, please write managing editor Megan Cummins at

Cancellation Policy: For cancellations within 4 days in advance of the class, we can offer a credit for a future class.
