FACING VIOLENCE ON THE PAGE
A So Say We All Master Class with Brooke King
Writing about violence doesn’t have to be complicated, it doesn’t have to be one-sided, and you certainly don’t need to be a victim of violence in order to write about it or what it does to the human condition.
This class will look at writing about violence (and sometimes not in the traditional sense of the word), explore the world of writing through guided exercises, and learn how to get past the imaginary blockade that we’ve placed in our minds about violence. It’s time to lean in to the page in front of you, instead of leaning away.
Saturday, February 24th
10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Mission Hills United Methodist Church
4044 Lark St, San Diego, CA 92103
