Craft Conversations: Dialogue

Dialogue, as much as anything else, reveals the character to the writer and, ultimately to the reader. I don’t have a very clear idea of who the characters are until they start talking. ~ Joan Didion Sometimes, when I’m lucky, a line of dialogue, either something I’ve dreamed up or overheard, will spark a story. Because dialogue is so revealing it can be an entrance point, a moment when a character speaking, reveals themself on the page. Because dialogue is the only time the reader directly hears from the characters without the filter of the narrator, the spoken words become a measure for the heart and mind of the characters.

For the Love of Roaming: Walking into the Lyric Essay

From Hemingway’s Moveable Feast to Thoreau’s meditation on “Walking” to Virginia Woolf’s “Street Haunting” to Rebecca Solnit’s Wanderlust, writers have connected the act of writing with the art of roaming. During this weekend together, we will spend some time reading poems and personal meditations on walking, and use them as prompts for our own writing. By the end of the weekend you will have a draft that includes memories of roaming, accounts of current saunters, quotes from other wanderers, and even some research perhaps — all braided into a lyric essay. Access Program We want our writing classes to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income and background. We understand that our tuition structure can present obstacles for some people.

Writing Towards Radical Self Love

“Liberation is the opportunity for every human, no matter their body, to have unobstructed access to their highest self; for every human to live in radical self love.” – Sonya Renee Taylor Radical self love is a liberation movement led by Sonya Renee Taylor, author of The Body is Not an Apology. It is through radical self love that we deconstruct and unlearn forces that keep us from our highest selves. In the process we relearn our innate belonging and swell with the wave of change towards a more just and loving world.
