It’s so easy to get so much wrong—in life and on the page. Some of the best writing there is springs from a recognition of our own poor misperceptions, miscommunications, wrong judgments. Helen Garner has written a masterful essay pertaining to just these themes, and we will think it through together; I’ll also offer a five-minute writing prompt. Three days in advance, an on-line link to the essays will be provided to those who sign up. A handful of participants will be invited to read their responses to a quick prompt out loud.
