Writer and insurance officer Franz Kafka said of daily life that it’s “the only life we have.” If Kafka was right, then what are we, as writers, to make of this only life? In this course, we’ll read and analyze stories and poems that examine the day as a microcosm for eternity, and try creative exercises that incorporate the daily log as a spark for creativity. Writers, over this four-session course, can expect to gain new perspectives on the so-called ordinary day, and to study how minor details might function as keys to unlock larger themes. Participants can expect to leave these sessions with a first draft. All writers—including those writing in Spanish or Portuguese—of all levels are welcome!

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
