Memory and the Lyric Essay
Scholar Rebecca Hussey defines the lyric essay as a "hybrid genre that combines essay and poetry." In this workshop, we will consider the different shapes that this hybridity can take, ranging from literary collage to non-linear narratives. We will discuss examples by Julie Marie Wade, Elisa Gabbert, Jenny Boully, Claudia Rankine, Maggie Nelson, and other writers as determined by student interests. From there, we will launch into a series of writing prompts that will embolden participants to integrate these newly gained techniques into their own projects.
