This course will delve into the ways magical realism can help us navigate the malaise and mundane. And yet, magic is not only used for spectacle. These surreal and fantastical moments can also help our writing traverse difficult topics such as depression, disconnection, and loss. In this course, we will solely look at how magical realism helps us transform our truths on the page.
