In this workshop, we will share our life stories and receive encouragement and critique on them. In-class exercises and prompts will take writers in unexpected directions. No prior writing experience is required.

This class will be taught by Theresa Burns. She holds an MFA in creative writing from Sarah Lawrence College. Her poems, reviews and nonfiction have appeared in The New York TimesPrairie SchoonerBellevue Literary ReviewNew Ohio Review and upstreet, among other places.
