Writing About the Everyday

UPDATE, 2/8/2018 – Unfortunately, this workshop has been canceled. But our Photography workshop is still open!

In this writing workshop, participants will focus on the small and seemingly insignificant details of everyday life. We will be reading work as well as listening to music that highlights the power of the small and show just how complicated and beautiful all the little things can be.

About the instructor: Chenel King was born and raised in Walnut, CA. King comes from a long line of storytellers and is obsessed with asking, “why?” Seeking to embody various different voices throughout time, history, and space gives this writer the opportunity to provide perspective and bend and break held knowledge. Constantly intrigued and mystified by the obscurities this world, without pause, has to offer, one can’t help but write.

King has a B.A. in English, Creative Writing from San Francisco State University (2011) and is a candidate for her M.F.A. in Creative Writing at Otis College of Art and Design (2018).

The class is free but there is a $5.00 fee that covers administrative costs.

It is recommended to bring a notepad and pen, but if you don’t have one, they will be provided for you. You will be given a swag bag with lots of materials.
