International Women's Writing Guild
Writing Grief Through Culture ($59/79)
How do writers talk about grief through a cultural lens? How does one's socio-economic class affect one's grief? What about immigration status? Sexuality? Birth order? In this talk, participants will analyze the craft of writing about grief through these various lenses with authors such as Michelle Zauner, T Kira Māhealani Madden, Maya Shanbhag Lang, and Lidia Yuknavitch to name a few. Participants will engage in several prompt writing exercises and leave the talk with new-found inspiration to explore their grief through various lenses.
