Modern Love: A Four-Part Writing Class

What's your "Modern Love" story? Since 2004, the New York Times Modern Love column has inspired, entertained, and encouraged us to reflect on our own true-life love stories. So, what's yours? In this four-part class, we'll explore some of the column's most beloved stories; learn techniques for writing story essays; put to paper some of our own relationships, regrets, joys, and memories; and to cap it all off, we'll try our hand at submitting our essays to the Times! Join us in writing, laughing, crying, and sharing Modern Love. Open to writers of all levels.

This is an online four-part series offered via Zoom. A commitment to attend all sessions is requested. Space is limited and registration is required. Please only register once for the first session - this will automatically register you for the entire series. A Zoom invite and any other necessary details will be sent out to all registrants before the first class.
