Creative Writing Classes

Full Disclosure – The Fall/Winter session is a bit of a mash-up since I’m off (after 41 years) to visit India. I’m so looking forward to meeting old friends, and visiting the different areas I grew up in – Kalimpong in the foothills of the Himalayas (where I went to boarding school), Calcutta where I lived for so many years, and Bombay – among a few other places.

Thanks to my students who have helped me work out this complicated schedule so I can go re-live my youth and memories.
