York Graduate Center, Room 101

Which stories are ours to tell and which carry us into the terrain of others’ lives? Our own stories often intersect with those entrusted to us by family, friends, and strangers; all are shaped by our cultural worlds.

In this Northwest Writing Institute workshop, we’ll explore memoir, biography, journalistic portraits, and travelogues. Our texts will include writing we generate in the workshop as well as work by various nonfiction writers. 

Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
