READING FOR WRITERS NONFICTION: WRITING ABOUT PARENTS - Writers spend many years unraveling their childhoods, and some of the most powerful essays and memoirs of recent years have examined the complexities of the parent/offspring relationship. In this class, students will read a wide variety of nonfiction addressing this topic, including work by Qian Julie Wang, Kiese Laymon, Jaquira Díaz, Alison Bechdel, Jo Ann Beard, T Kira Madden, and Brandon Taylor, and learn techniques for writing about this subject in a nuanced and kaleidoscopic way. Through close reading as well as writing exercises, we will focus on how to make a parent multidimensional on the page.
