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 will leave these sessions with at least the beginnings of a first draft. All writers of all levels are welcome!

About GrubStreet Remote Classes
GrubStreet will be hosting all of our classes remotely from now through the end of the summer. We’ve decided as a staff that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts, and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of disease. You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! You’ll receive an email from your instructor on the day your class is scheduled with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information!
