Attention Queens writers—both experienced and new-to-writing: free creative writing classes taught by the best writers in Queens!
In this workshop, we will explore our pasts and write 800-word memoirs and personal essays about race and immigration. We will read texts by writers such as Lee Martin, Richard Rodriguez, and Bhanu Kapil and consider the use of metaphor as a way to access emotional material. Come ready to read, remember, and write.
