Using your life as the source for personal essays, stories, and memoir, you’ll learn techniques to access and shape your material, approach it from new angles, and find the pearls. Includes instruction, in-class writing and feedback. Deutsch’s book Writing from the Senses will be published in May. Her work has appeared in the L.A. Times, MORE magazine, Eating Well, and Best Women’s Travel Writing. She has taught writing at UC Berkeley. “Laura was terrific — organized and original, a generous and talented teacher. This is one of the best classes I’ve taken,” says one student.
