Interested in nonfiction?

A new student forum this semester will explore the nonfiction genre of trauma writing. Led by two juniors, Cade Lebron ’14 and Jenessa Duncombe ’14, this course will provide a focused workshop for trauma writing. Participants will explore the nature of trauma, and write five short pieces and one longer piece. Some topics to be covered include: what is trauma writing?, trauma writing vs. traumatized writing, language of trauma, and many more. Short excerpts from books and essays will be assigned that relate to the topics.
