No matter what your background, you have a unique and meaningful story to tell. Your family, heritage, culture, and traditions offer a rich source of material that can be used to generate powerful stories.
Whether you write fiction, non-fiction, or both, this class will show you how to draw on your own background to generate writing that is deeply meaningful to you, to the people you love, and even to complete strangers.
“As the daughter of an Iranian father and a Lithuanian mother, I have a complicated heritage that has inspired both my fiction and non-fiction,” says instructor Anita Amirrezvani. “This class gives students the tools they need to harness the power of their own rich backgrounds in their writing.”
This daylong class will include in-class writing prompts, and fiction and non-fiction reading assignments on the subject of identity. Sharing work will be encouraged but not required.

The class exceeded my expectations. It has been awhile since taking a writing class and wasn’t sure I would get motivated enough to write. But I did! Anita’s teaching style was great. She gave us lots of time to answer questions and a lot of time to write.
