Write Now! Writerly Delights

July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

- $22

WRITERLY DELIGHT IN THE MORE-THAN-HUMAN WORLD

“It didn’t take me long to learn that the discipline or practice of writing these essays occasioned a kind of delight radar. Or maybe it was more like the development of a delight muscle. Something that implies that the more you study delight, the more delight there is to study.” (Ross Gay, The Book of Delights)

In this class, we’ll read and discuss the works of writers who engage unabashedly with their sense of delight in the natural world. We’ll do some exercises designed to help us discover ways in which the more-than-human world offers us invitations into moments of delight and awe–and discuss how to develop a practice of accepting these invitations when they come. Then, we’ll practice writing about these delights in fresh, original, and unapologetic ways. Led by mindful creative writing professor, Melissa Jean, Ph.D.
