Whether you're new or old to Nashville, it could be time to get to know the city more deeply—and create new art in the process. Jumpstart your creativity in this collaborative, place-based course with generative writing exercises set all over the city. Each week, we'll meet in a different part of our city (think the Café at Thistle Farms, Jefferson Street Sound Museum, and the Richland Creek Greenway). We'll learn more about where we are and where we've been, with generative writing exercises to get us thinking and talking and writing about home. At the end of the month, we'll submit finished pieces (an essay, a poem, a story) that share a glimpse of our own Nashville neighborhoods.

Eliana Ramage is a Cherokee Nation citizen born and raised in Nashville, where she works with youth in college access at a non-profit. She received her MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop in 2018, and holds an MA in creative writing from Bar-Ilan University and a BA in English literature from Dartmouth College. Her stories and essays have appeared in Beloit Fiction Journal, The Baltimore Review, CRAFT, and the anthologies All the Women in My Family Sing and Re(Sisters). She is at work on her first novel.

What Our Students Say

"Eliana is so positive and encouraging, and I found myself reenergized in my writing practice outside of class. She's extremely knowledgeable of the craft and I appreciated all of her insights."
