In many ways, Joan Didion imposes in her newest book, “writing is the act of saying I, of imposing oneself upon other people, of saying listen to me, see it my way, change your mind."   

"I write because I am enamored of the performance of words on a page or a screen, and of the curious and shimmering images in my mind, which I browse often, and which I investigate from time to time." 

Two sessions devoted to “writing the essay” initially by reading Joan Didion’s new book, Let Me Tell You What I Mean, and then by actually reviewing each other’s writing. You can work on an already-existing draft, or begin one anew. Two Mondays: July 19 and 26, from 6:00 to 8 00 p.m. EST

Required Book:
