"If I were to remember other things, I should be someone else," writes N. Scott Momaday in his memoir The Names. Through a series of in-class writing exercises, you will generate a list of things remembered, the memories and moments that make you you. You'll be challenged to tell complete—and true—stories in no more than 750 words apiece as we explore the art of flash nonfiction. We will discuss strategies for composing and revising as well as review submission processes for two online literary journals dedicated to short forms.

This class is part of a series of classes that cover the issues and traditions of writers of color and indigenous writers, and is intended for writers of color and indigenous writers. Participants are welcome to register for one, several, or all of the monthly sessions.

The class is offered on a pay what you can basis with the suggested fee of $15 ($13.50 for Loft members, or $0 for students who are unable to pay) available online. No student will be turned away for not paying. You can register online or in person at each class, where there will also be an opportunity to pay whatever amount is appropriate for you.
