Rambling Women Who Write: Rewriting Wandering  

“Getting up we said, ‘Really I must buy a pencil,’ as if under cover of this excuse we could indulge safely in the greatest pleasure of town life in winter—rambling the streets of London.” ?Virginia Woolf, Street Haunting. Women have a complicated wandering history. This itinerant writing course invites participants to respond to the historically gendered literature of wandering through writing and rambling. Each week, the first half of the class will be designated to discussion of one author’s rambling-related literary work, the author’s chosen form, and her own rambling practices. The second half of the class will take place outside, where we will use imitation to ramble using the author’s senses.
