About the event
In her essay, “Street Haunting,” Virginia Woolf says, “For there we sit surrounded by objects which perpetually express the oddity of our own temperaments and enforce the memories of our own experience.” In poetry and prose, objects are often used to aid the writer’s articulation of abstract and complex topics.
In this seminar, we’ll focus on how writers can use objects and landscapes to connect our inner and outer worlds. Students will participate in object writing exercises. As we read work by essayists such as Ana Maria Spagna, Angela Morales, and Sarah Manguso, we’ll discuss how they use objects and landscapes to contemplate complex problems and invite readers to follow their meandering minds. Students will engage in writing exercises and work on their own contemplative essays. Click Here to Register!
