3G: There Are Too Many Feelings! How to Write About the World When It Feels Like It's Moving Too Fast.
Limited Capacity seats available

Other writers may be overwhelmed by the emotions a particular subject of investigation might provoke. In this workshop, we will move through a series of exercises to help focus work that may have been inspired by big feelings. We will practice strategies for uncovering and making plain the core subject. We will also consider how strong emotions might provide useful direction for the narrative and aesthetic direction of the work.
