Writing Obituaries

April 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm


Bielawski – Sunday, Apr 18, 1-2:15 pm (Online)

Writing Obituaries

Writing about death in a culture that routinely flinches away from the subject may seem a staggering task. In this class we will lean in to answering the questions that accompany obituary writing, as well as address the formal elements of an obituary, and the choices a writer may make. Join me on Zoom for a reading and writing workshop on this topic. Everyone is welcome; no prior experience with obituaries is necessary.

About the Instructor:

She honed her photography skills at Bard College in Upstate N.Y. with professors Stephen Shore and An-My Lê; there she developed a passionate interest in film photography. Morgan writes primarily short stories and nonfiction; her work has been published in The Documentarian, Lux, and Sui Generis. She also translates stories and poems from Russian and Middle English to (Modern) English. Morgan has a BA in Written Arts, and two academic concentrations: one in film photography, and another in Russian. In her spare time, Morgan plays and records American folk music and looks after her two fish.
