The Dog, the Trip, and the Love:
Subjects that move us to write, yet prove difficult to write about
This six-week workshop inventories the major obstacles to good dog writing, good trip writing, and good love writing. We will read selected works of published nonfiction on these themes and explore a variety of techniques for portraying animal companions, journeys, and beloveds—as well as any other exceptionally elusive-yet-motivating subjects you might bring to the table. Participants will receive weekly prompts and will have the opportunity to share and learn from work generated within the group. Ultimately, the goal of this workshop is to multiply our ideas about how to get what’s dear to us onto the page.
