Turning Life into Art
with Christina Baker Kline, Paula McLain & Helen Simonson
Christina Baker Kline and Paula McLane are returning to KWC to lead this class again. It was the most popular of all the master classes for the last two years. Attendees came away feeling that their entire approach to writing had been transformed and enriched.
This year, they will be joined by Helen Simonson.
The class is a rare opportunity to learn from these remarkable authors. Each will delve deeply into the process by which she draws inspiration for her work from people, places and events in her life. Writing, at its essence, is a process of transmuting one’s life experiences into art. In this class, you will learn unique way each of these renowned writers does this.
It is equally suitable for writers of fiction and memoir. Through dialog and written exercises, each of the teachers will inspire and challenge you to become more conscious and intentional about how you yourself are “turning life into art.”
