Now more than ever, it is vital for writers of the Rust Belt to represent our sense of place with passion and insight. As politicians, commentators and the entertainment elite try to define us for their own purposes, we must observe and project the reality of our communities and the lives we live here. In this workshop, we will discuss techniques for writing about place, with an emphasis on the postindustrial landscape of Northeast Ohio. The session will include a writing exercise; participants should bring a notebook or laptop.
The Hard Way On Purpose: Friday, August 18, 3:00-4:30, St. John’s Episcopal Church, 323 Wick Ave. Course fee: $15. Register here.
