C1875: Writing About Ourselves in Sprout Spring 16 (Feb. 13 - 27, 2016)
Do you have a story that needs to be told? Are you curious about seeing how influential family or cultural history can be while writing? In this class we will explore different mediums (non-fiction, short essay, poetry) and different authors (Audre Lorde, Sandra Cisneros, Junot Diaz) where cultural and familial influence in strongly embedded in the work. We will explore how our stories, no matter how similar they are, are especially unique because they belong to us.
