This semester, Lang’s First-Year Writing Program is hosting a series of Craft-Lesson Lunches where faculty will present dynamic and inspiring lessons in the craft of writing. These weekly lunches will run like an interactive seminar, bringing writing students and faculty together for both in-depth discussions of writing fundamentals and the more advanced lessons in what it takes to write convincing and arresting work.
The event is open to any interested students (and faculty). Food will be provided.
This week's craft lunch lecturer will be Diana Goetsch on Figurative Language.
Diana Goetsch is the recipient of the 2017-2018 Grace Paley Teaching Fellowship. She's an award-winning poet and essayist whose American Scholar column, “Life in Transition,” she says, was her opportunity to document her coming out as a trans woman “as a service to a battered community.” She has published eight collections of poetry, and her work has appeared in many magazines and journals, including The New Yorker, Ploughshares and The Pushcart Prize Anthology. Her teaching credits include higher education in Oklahoma and Kentucky and 21 years in the NYC public schools, where she founded a creative writing program for incarcerated juveniles.
