Beautiful Flesh: A Body Writing Workshop (Jackson, WY)

  • Teton County Library 125 Virginian Lane Jackson, WY, 83001 United States (map)

What stories does a body have to tell? In this 3-hour workshop at Teton County Library, we’ll use selections from the powerful anthology Beautiful Flesh: A Body of Essays to unlock the stories folded into our limbs and organs. Together, we’ll consider how different forms and voices allow us to make meaning from our corporeal histories, drawing on specific essays from the book to guide our thinking about craft, and we'll write to prompts that help us excavate and illuminate the stories we contain. This class requires the pre-reading of several essays.

Cost:  Free to the public. No registration required.
