Brooklyn-based Ashley C. Ford has written or guest-edited for The Guardian, ELLE, BuzzFeed, Slate, I-D, Lenny Letter, Matter, Design*Sponge and many other publications. She is current writing a memoir and co-editing the anthology Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture with Roxane Gay.
Ford has recently launched Creative Writing: Writing From Memory, a six-part short course for online learning community Skillshare.
The course is for writers of every level and aims to teach essential skills for writing from memory including reporting on yourself, what to do when you don’t remember something you want to write about, pulling memories into the present and sharing your memories with the world.
