Instructor: Jennifer Niesslein
$60 Members | $65 Nonmembers
Saturday, 6/8/19 | 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

When you experience a life-changing event, how do you even begin to write about it? And how do you make your work stand out from other work that tackles the same kind of event? In this seminar, we’ll focus on a few approaches and forms to tackle the tough stuff. Expect to read and discuss, and write and share, and leave with the germ of your next essay.

Jennifer Niesslein is the founder and editor of Full Grown People. She also co-founded Brain, Child magazine. She’s the author of one memoir, Practically Perfect in Every Way, the editor of two Full Grown People anthologies, and an essayist. She’s on leave from Full Grown People to write another book. You can read more of her work at JenniferNiesslein.com.
