Diving Deep: Explorations in Memoir with Mindy Lewis (via Zoom)

March 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Imagine a duck gliding across a lake, following the currents, nibbling at specks on the surface. Suddenly, it dives down, disappearing from view, and resurfaces minutes later to resume its journey. Join me and fellow writers in diving deep to explore the essential themes of your life’s stories. We will harness elements of craft—sensory details, compelling language, evocative imagery, scene, dialogue, inner voice—to create, share, and discuss resonant, personal, powerful writing. At-home writing will be shared and discussed, along with occasional in-class exercises, and writing prompts and handouts will provide inspiration.

This class will be taught on six consecutive Tuesday afternoons, from March 22 until April 26 from 1- 3:30 pm EST. Class needs 5 students to run, is capped at 8 students, and will be taught via Zoom. The link will be sent at the time of registration and again in the day before class. Please write to admin@writerscenter.org with any questions.

Mindy Lewis is the author of Life Inside: A Memoir; co-author of A Curious Life: From Rebel Orphan to Innovative Scientist; editor of DIRT: The Quirks, Habits and Passions of Keeping House; and the recipient of New Letters 2015 Essay Award. Her writing has been published in Newsweek, New York Times Book Review, Lilith, Body & Soul, Poets & Writers, Arts & Letters Journal, New Letters, Many Mountains Moving, Psychoanalytic Perspectives, online, and in anthologies. She has taught at The Writer’s Voice in New York City, Hudson Valley Writers Center, Brooklyn College, Poets & Writers, and as a visiting writer at SUNY and George Mason University’s MFA Program.
