Writing the City (July 15-July 19)
Lace up your sneakers - we’re heading outside! In “Writing the City,” we will use all of our senses to write stories, poems, and creative essays about the neighborhood many of us call home. Each class will involve an exploration of Washington Heights and Inwood, all the way from its oldest forests to its newest buildings. Through readings and class discussion, we’ll also discover how writers like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Junot Diaz, and R. J. Palacio have made our neighborhood come alive in their writing. Does your city have a story? It’s up to you to find out.
