Kit de Waal wrote "Working-class stories are not always tales of the underprivileged and dispossessed—these are narratives rich in barbed humour, their technique and vernacular reflecting the depth and texture of working-class life, the joy and sorrow, the solidarity and the differences, the everyday wisdom and poetry of the woman at the bus-stop, the waiter, the hairdresser."

In this day-long class, we will examine some poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction from working class writers to inspire our own work, along with exercises to generate new material about the working class experience.
