Rainbow love to the front! This class is all about telling queer love stories. We’ll read and discuss works by LGBTQ+ writers every week, including Maggie Nelson’s “The Argonauts”, Anne Carson’s “Autobiography of Red”, and Justin Torres’s “Reverting to a Wild State”; explore different forms and craft techniques for capturing queerness and love; and generate several new pieces. Special attention will be paid toward developing complexity and character-depth within our love stories.

Join us to be in community with other LGBTQ+ writers, garner plenty of inspiration, and have accountability to develop your stories. 

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
