Your White Whale: Symbolism and the Objective Correlative

  • Lighthouse Writers 1515 Race Street Denver, CO, 80206 United States (map)

Even if you’re not writing a symbolic story, essay, or poem, you are a symbolic writer. You can’t help yourself. As human beings, we use clues and symbols from our real and/or fictional worlds to understand people, define value systems, explore questions, decide on plans of action, and create meaning from our experiences. In this class, we’ll explore ways to use symbolism to create richer, more evocative narrative worlds.
