Writing About Home

from 138.00

Whether you're a local Nashvillian or a recent transplant, you're probably thinking about your relationship to the place you call home. Maybe it's the place you were born. Maybe it's where you are now, or where you envision being in the future. Many writers have wrestled with the idea of home, and all the questions that come with it. Is home synonymous with family? What happens when you've been away from home for a long time, and come back to find it unrecognizable? How, and when, does a person decide whether or not to call a new place their home? Should a place automatically make a person feel "at home," or should people strive to change a place to make them feel that way? We'll look at examples from both fiction and nonfiction, and try various in-class writing exercises to wrestle with these questions ourselves. This workshop welcomes writers who already have completed drafts, as well as writers just getting started.
