TW/CW For the Whole Course: Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, religious intolerance, sexual assault; probably descriptions of graphic violence.
People of color, LGBTQ, women, disabled people, non-Christians: this is a free, self-paced course to guide you through writing down some of your story, because I think humanizing is going to be sorely needed in the years upcoming. Whether a present-day story or past, no matter what you plan to do with your writings--from private journaling to publishing--on any themes that emerge, I will offer up prompts and writing strategies for telling your stories, and a message board where students can comment on each others' work as desired.
I am a white female who identifies on the LGBT spectrum, an atheist, and a person with a disability, all targeted populations in the new American regime. I have a summa cum laude BA in Writing, with an emphasis on Creative Nonfiction (memoir), and minors in Sociology and Creative Writing, from the University of Colorado Denver. I have been a professional writer for more than 25 years. I offer this free because first, I cannot constantly monitor and "teach" the class (though do email me with any problems or questions), and second, because this is how I can use my privilege and my skills to help minority populations, including my own, resist the dark days ahead.
