Autonomous, Intriguing, World-Changing Memoir

Campus contacts

Let's wander around in the brainpan, and be brave, sensitive and expansive in our writing practice. Through guided exercises and discussion, we'll consider our experiences, vulnerabilities, intuitions and obligations. All levels welcome.

We want freedom for ourselves and for others. We want to understand and convey the complexity of things. We want global transformation. But it's too much to do, and who are we to do it? We'll start with the concrete. We'll explore the potential held within the personal and collective imagination. We'll discuss how we might express the inexpressible, the risky, the traumatic, the downright offensive. Jenny Forrester has received awards for fiction and nonfiction, and creates micro-communities of writers, readers, and others through writing, teaching, organizing, and publishing. She runs Creative Study Hall and the Unchaste Variety Show, and is the author of a memoir and a collection of essays.
