30 Days: Journaling Through Catastrophe
April 8-May 7
Instructor/Moderator: Lillian Ann Slugocki
Each participant in this offering will keep a guided public journal of at least 500 words for 30 days. The class will be structured like a Massive Open Online Class (MOOC), so people can drop in any time, day or night. Students will join a private Facebook group where each day’s prompt will be posted (and/or on Instagram/Twitter) at 6 p.m. PST. Participants can post their entry right on the Facebook page, or send by email, and indicate whether it’s private or public (with name/or anonymous). All the days’ entries marked public will be published on Angels Flight • literary west as a living, breathing document. Participants are also welcome to choose the day’s theme by pitching the idea to the group. The journal grows organically as a conversation and a shared document of our days together fighting a pandemic. This space is inclusive, all are welcome. You may use a pseudonym, and it is free.
Curated by Lillian Ann Slugocki, this offering will be a supportive group community effort to write and share.
