This four-part writing workshop is open to writers of all levels who seek a creative way to respond to the recent presidential election and current developments in American politics. This workshop will be led by author and Manhattanville MFA Program Director Lori Soderlind. It will include discussion of relevant literary works on politics in the modern era, from journalist Hunter S. Thompson to essayist Rebecca Traister. Participants will create and revise one original prose work—a personal essay, a short memoir, a piece of literary journalism—that expresses a researched and crafted view on the contemporary political climate.
Registration fee: $150
Registration is limited and on a first come, first serve basis.
