Len Kuntz – How Loss Can Inform and Transform Our Writing: October 14-16, 2022
Some of the most powerful, and memorable, art ever created focuses on the subject of loss. Why? Because loss is a universal theme, something each of us experiences and endures at some point in our life. It can be the loss of innocence, youth, the loss of a family member or friend, the loss of a cherished memento, a breakup, an estranged friendship.
The very best writing on the topic of loss takes us to the center of that pain and confusion while also lifting us out of it, providing a spark of hopefulness, character change, or epiphany.
Please join me as we take an intensive dive into the vast reservoir that is loss. We’ll tackle what it means to lose something precious while also making our own beautiful and profound art from it.
This four month program brings the experience of our instructors (like our very own editor-in-chief and award-winning writer Robert Vaughan and our fiction editor Meg Tuite) in an informal online setting. Participants receive a monthly “lesson” and writing prompts, mid-month meetings with your cohort in an optional full group Zoom Meeting, and monthly one-on-one sessions with the instructor via Zoom.
Each year we offer a couple week-long, in person writing retreats. You will have the opportunity and inspiration to explore the unique challenges that writers face in writing a new piece each day. The workshop is ideal for writers of all levels of experience, from previously published writers to novice writers who are ready to launch into new terrain.
