Rage Is A Red Lesson: How to Turn Anger into Charged Prose

The era of Trump has become an age of wrath, one in which the impulse to make art is being shouted down by the desire to make war. In this politically charged workshop, we’ll examine how writers are able to harness their anger and use it as an engine for their creative work. We’ll look at the work of masters such as Claire Messud and Herman Melville, and use an in-class exercise to examine the sorrows that lurk beneath the armor of our anger.

Note: A book signing will be held after class for ​Bad Stories: What the Hell Just Happened to Our Country.
