Side Combs in the Ashes: Witnessing the humane
There is a silence in catastrophe, a collective shock filling the ineffable spaces of our shared human consciousness. Trauma is perceived in fragmented intelligence until the unfathomable is explored in words, the mysterious unlocked in letters and the experience no longer beyond language. This seminar seeks to provide writers with the tools needed to elevate the human experience to art and to focus on humanity, even within the context of inhumanity.
