Class Description

This workshop is designed for those interested in writing or revising personal essays about migration experiences as well as stories set outside of the United States. Students will learn new ways to tell multicultural stories, with attention given to both form and content. In addition to workshops, the class will include craft lectures and discussion of published writing by multicultural authors such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Gloria Anzaldua, Alexander Chee, Edwidge Danticat, Peter Hessler, Maxine Hong Kingston, R.O. Kwon , Chang-rae Lee, Vladimir Nabokov, Ira Sukrungruang, Amy Tan, and others.

Over six weeks, students will respond to writing prompts inspired by our readings and discussions, and submit and workshop 3-5 short essays of various lengths. The instructor will also provide feedback for submitted work. At the end of the course students will have a set of essays and a path forward to possible publication!
