There are two things most writers need and crave: time and space. In this class, we will give ourselves the gift of time. In the nurturing space here at Sarah Lawrence College, we find and begin to write the stories we live every day. Using our histories, memories, and senses as launching pads, we will begin to transform the ordinariness of our lives into extraordinary stories. This class is for those who want to write but don’t yet believe they have anything to say, as well as for those who want to write but need the time and space to do it.

Patricia Dunn, Director of the Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College, is author of the novel, Rebels by Accident (Sourcebooks). Her writing has appeared in Global City Review,, Women’s eNews, The Christian Science Monitor, The Village Voice, The Nation, and L.A. Weekly, among others. Her work has been anthologized in Stories of Illness and Healing: Women Write Their Bodies, and in the bestselling anthology Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women. Pat earned her MFA in creative writing from Sarah Lawrence College. Find out more about Patricia at http://www.patriciadunnauthor.
